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.

Jozef Peeters

1895 - 1960

Born in Antwerpen (Belgium).

Jozef Peeters was the very personification of the avant-garde in Antwerp in the 1920s: abstract painter, tireless promoter of the new art, publisher of reviews of international note - Het Overzicht, De Driehoek. His conceptions concerning ‘pure plastic vision’ are less strict than those propounded by De Stijl. Vertical-horizontal compositions and the three primary colors make way for a more flexible composition with circles and triangles, in a broad spectrum of colors. He ceases painting in 1927, and in the 1930s he produces self-designed furniture, as well as wall- and ceiling paintings for his own apartment in Antwerp, making it a showcase of ‘constructivist logic’.
