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.

Exhibition: Middle Gate Geel '13

Stadsbestuur Geel, Geel

29 September 2013 - 19 January 2014

Middle Gate Geel ’13 concentrates on three main domains: myth, psychiatry, and art. More specifically, it sets out to analyse the mutual interaction between mythical or magic-religious art, outsider art and art-as-art, ignoring differences and focussing instead on connections and links, affinities and parallels with respect to these three phenomena. This exhibition wants to do more than just ‘compile’ a number of works that somehow refer to the three main phenomena. It has no intention of providing clear-cut answers – it merely wants to disorder and disturb what we thought we know. Through the combination of myths with psychiatry and art, this exhibition seeks to create a mental space capable of yielding insights about the assumption of what art is – or could be.

By its historical and current context, the city Geel is giving an extra dimension to the exhibition since it is one of the most unique places in the world in terms of psychiatric care and more specifically family care.
Psychiatric patients of the Public Psychiatric Care Centre (OPZ) are included in foster families for centuries. The dialogue between patients and non-patients is central. The exhibition will make full use of this context and seeks to continue this dialogue and intensify.
