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.

Where Dogs Run

° 2000

Works in Yekaterinburg (RU).

Where Dogs Run is the name of an enthusiastic Russian artists’ collective from Yekaterinburg in the Urals, they use multimedia techniques for creating intellectual and slightly subversive, artistic statements, in the form of installations, videos and DIY packages.

This group, which could be called media artists, combines innovative visual techniques with scientific research instruments and low tech for creating hybrid installations that produce a form of artificial intelligence, which is also questioned at the same time. This intelligence is, however, consciously controlled and influenced, which immediately exposes their political and scientific suspicion. The creative collective, which was established in the year 2000, uses a broad scale of techniques (sound, video, installations, performances), with which they let their personal, idealistic ideas interact with empirical research and their bodily experiences, but also doctrines or mythological stories.

With an advanced imagination, they create pseudo-scientific installations, which are designed to expose the psychological and social mechanisms that, unnoticed, determine daily reality. This makes it possible for them to create an artificial world that wants to be futuristic and free, but which nevertheless remains inseparably connected to the demonic background of historic reality. The group consists of Vladislav Bulatov (°1975), Natalia Grekhova (°1976), Olga Inozemtseva (°1977) and Aleksey Korzukhin (°1973).
