It is the task of a museum of contemporary art to represent the complexity of artistic actuality as well as to elucidate the underlying lines of force, possible questionings and relations with previous or contemporary phenomena. M HKA this by means of –amongst other things- large-scale exhibitions on the occasion of which it always try to show connections and build bridges between divergent fields of interest, for instance a calling into question of a specific context as linked to an approach of an artistic understanding and to a politics of presentation.
There are four large-scale exhibitions per year, following the rhythm of the season. They are displayed on the ground floor.

A collection does not tell one large story, but several partial ones; it can be looked at from different angles. For this reason, M HKA opts to show it collection of international contemporary art (from 1970 onwards) in regularly changing constellations, rather than in one allegedly ‘ideal’ version, more or less like a series in which each chapter resonates with a different voice.
