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.

Otobong Nkanga

2015 otobongnkangazw

° 1974

Geboren in Kano (NG), leeft in Antwerp (BE).

Otobong Nkanga (°1974, Kano, Nigeria) volgde studies aan de Obafemi Awolowo Universiteit in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, de École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Frankrijk, en behaalde haar master in de performance kunst aan DasArts, Nederland. Sinds 2007 woont en werkt ze in Antwerpen. Nkanga’s tekeningen, installaties, foto’s, sculpturen, wandtapijten, gedichten en performances onderzoeken de sociale en topografische relatie met onze omgeving. Ze brengt de herinneringen en de historische impact van menselijke ingrepen in de natuur aan het licht en bestudeert de systemen en methoden verbonden aan het ontginnen, verwerken en transporteren van grondstoffen. Hierbij besteedt ze veel aandacht aan de connectie tussen ertsen, materiële cultuur en de herverdeling van macht en kennis.
