M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Charles Henri Ford

1913 - 2002

Born in Brookhaven, Mississippi (United States).

Charles Henri Ford, artist, poet, editor, and filmmaker was born in 1913 in Brookhaven, Mississippi, and died in 2002. Still in his teens, Ford published his first two poems in the New Yorker and following this success continued to publish poetry in various magazines. Ford dropped out of high school in 1929 in order to publish, together with Parker Tyler and Kathleen Tankersley, the low-key magazine Blues: A Magazine of New Rhythms, conceived as a vehicle for experimental writing. In 1931, Ford sailed for where he quickly ensconced himself in the expatriate literary community. In 1933, The Young and Evil, a novel, written together with Parker Tyler about the homosexual world of Greenwich Village in the early thirties, was published in Paris by Obelisk Press. From 1940 to 1947, Ford, again with Tyler, published another independent magazine View, centered around surrealist writing and painting. Perhaps prompted by his acquaintance with the denizens of Andy Warhol's Factory, Ford also made two movies: Poem Posters (1966) and Johnny Minotaur (1972).
