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.

Wim Delvoye


° 1965

Vit à London (GB), né à Wervik (BE), vit à Ghent (BE).

Wim Delvoye is a much talked about and controversial artist. Since the second-half of the 1980s, he’s decorated modern, familiar objects. In the art world he stands out due to his fascination for the banal, the everyday and the culture of kitsch. He always combines ‘almost-art’ with modern objects that are associated with daily life. By bringing together elements from different contexts the individual images lose their familiar nature. In doing so, Delvoye uses and creates contradictions, mainly between surface (skin) and content (support): the painting often becomes a support for the object.
