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.

James Lee Byars

Byars%20%20james%20lee ©image: ICC Archive

1932 - 1997

Geboren in Detroit (US), overleden in Cairo (EG).

James Lee Byars (1932–1997, °Detroit, VS, † Caïro, Egypte) zwerft de hele wereld rond. Lange verblijven in Europa, Azië en Afrika beïnvloeden diepgaand zijn kunst, die een eigenzinnige mix van barok en zen, van het theatrale en het meditatieve wordt genoemd. In tal van werken werkt hij aan de niet-doctrine TH FI TO IN PH (THe FIrst TOtally INterrogative PHilosophy, de eerste volledig vragende filosofie). Net als een aantal van zijn collega’s (met name Carl Andre, Lawrence Weiner en Gordon Matta-Clark) onderhoudt Byars sterke en duurzame banden met België en Nederland. Extraterrestrial, een reusachtig figuratief textielwerk uit de M HKA-collectie, is gemaakt voor een performance in Antwerpen.
