The Antwerp Hundreds

Portraits of a city's people, today

To mark the release of our Warriors edition, we've teamed up with This is Antwerp to bring you 100 Antwerp Warriors, a 100-strong selection of local movers and shakers setting the tone for the neighbourhood of tomorrow. From design and architecture to contemporary art and politics, these are the creatives shaping the narrative of the future.



Contemporary arts museum

Antwerp’s M HKA museum for contemporary art is housed in a refurbished grain silo in the city’s museum-heavy Zuid district. One of the most forward-thinking museums in the country, its curatorial team has hosted exhibitions by Belgian pioneers Panamarenko and Marcel Broodthaers, striving to place Belgian art in an international context by remaining on the cutting-edge of contemporary art. Counting no less than four floors, the museum regularly hosts residencies, daylong exhibitions as well as showcases by local emerging artists – a ‘digital ravers’ night hosted by subversive Belgian contemporary artists Xavier Mary being one of the most recent examples – making it a firm neighbourhood favourite.
