'Visits' is more than just a loan from the museum's collection; it is also a project functioning as a catalyst for explicating the power of visual art in a local context.
M HKA's Director Bart De Baere says: 'Thanks to "Visits", artworks owned by the Flemish Community can find their way to other parts of their broader home base -- i.e. society at large -- and then return, enriched with new insights, to their narrower home base -- i.e. the museum. Thanks to the interest from communities such as Diest, Bornem and Genk, we are now preparing a new round of works to be shown in a similar way. M HKA is always looking out for these opportunities to collect more stories and insights as these works tour and return to us.'
