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.

Rodney Graham

Rodney graham

° 1949

Lives in Vancouver (Canada).

Rodney Graham is recognized for a rigorously intellectual art, which ranges from photography, film, video and music to sculpture, painting and books. Graham's work examines social and philosophical systems of thought, in particular those derived from the transition of the Enlightenment into Modernism. Underlying each work is an historical context, through which a complex narrative incorporates literary and philosophic references and visual puns. The work is essentially circular in structure and moves in seamless and infinite loops, such as the film trilogy Vexation Island (1997), How I Became a Ramblin' Man (1999), and City Self/Country Self (2001), where Graham impersonates fictional characters - respectively a castaway, a cowboy and a city dandy as well as its opposite, a country man – who are engaged in the endless repetition of fruitless actions and gestures, caught in the impossibility of reaching any meaningful conclusion. Borrowing from existing models, Graham constructs his own system, whose operating logic, often based in disorientation, the humorous and the absurd, deflects rather than reveals the key to their interpretation.
