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.

Ensemble: Stone as stone

Most of nature is stone; stone is everywhere. However, presenting stones as art is something else. “Well, you have to help stones”, says Jimmie Durham, “they don’t work on their own”. It is therefore the role of the artist to present these stones in various ways, modify them, dress them up, label them, so that they can become works of art (still not neglecting their primal identity as stones) as we can see the works in this ensemble.
