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.

Jimmie Durham was born in Arkansas, U.S., and became involved with art and theatre in the 1960‘s. He has lived in Houston, Texas, where together with the black playwright Vivian Ayers Durham founded a theatre group and a magazine whose public was mainly of minority groups such as black and Indian communities. Ayers introduced Durham to Muhammed Ali, with whom he made a performance in 1964. His first solo exhibition was in Austin, Texas in 1965. By that time Jimmie Durham was also writing poetry and had published his first poems. He went on a freighter ship to Europe in 1968 and studied at L'École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva from 1968 to 1972. In that period he also made performances in the streets of Geneva of which very little photographic material exists.
