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.

Pieter Engels

° 1938

Born in Rosmalen (NL), lives in Amsterdam (NL).

Pieter Engels was born in Amsterdam in 1938 and has been an active participant in the Dutch conceptual art scene since the late sixties, when the Dutch capital in particular was a major hub of vanguard, genre-defining (and -defying) cultural activity. Like so much of the work produced by many of his European contemporaries, Engels’ conceptually inflected practice reflects upon the politics (or, more pointedly, the economics) of the art world in a manner that shows a clear debt to Fluxus’ ethic of insolence and irreverence, often using language in a way that is quite distinct from the grave austerity of American conceptual art.
