V-A-C Foundation produces new culture together with artists and audiences alike. It is a platform for open discussion aimed at redefining the contemporary landscape. Working with local communities, V-A-C promotes its exhibition, publishing, performative and learning programmes beyond all disciplinary boundaries and thus constantly resets the coordinates for dialogue within a new global geography. This methodology is applied in all V-A-C initiatives, taking place in its Venetian space, through international, cross-institutional partnerships and in its future home for arts and culture in Moscow, GES-2.
M HKA is the Flemish museum for contemporary art, film and visual culture, based in Antwerp. It takes the international post-war avant-garde as a base to engage with the art from the contemporary multipolar world. M HKA connects artistic issues and broader societal issues, international and regional perspectives, artists and audiences, tradition and renewal, reflection and presentation. It positions itself as a Eurasian museum, interpreting Eurasia in the vein of Joseph Beuys and Jimmie Durham. It organized substantial exhibitions of Russian art and has a major collection of contemporary art from the former soviet sphere.
