M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

C K Rajan

° 1960

Born in Kerala (IN), lives in Hyderabad (IN).

C K Rajan is a member of the Radical Group in the 1980s, a group that takes form at the University of Baroda, from where it fights both the status quo within the Indian art world and  the Indian political system.

Rajan is originally trained as a painter. After the group's disintegration in the late 1980s, he devotes himself both to sculptural works, inspired by pop art, and to a comprehensive series of collages. Rajan continues his political concerns in these works, but in a way that smartly manages to circumvent an explicit didactic approach.

Globalisation had a big impact on India and brought political and economic changes. Rajan tries to find visual equivalents for the social unrest that makes itself felt, but is disguised as the creation of a 'new middle class'. He balances between critical and socially engaged assembly and associations with surrealism.
