M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Literary synopsis

The Amaranthers is Yeats' second novel where James Gilfoyle, a Dubliner, makes a journey to a magical isle off the west of Ireland. It is a mixture of straightforward narrative, a personal version of stream-of-thought, the melodrama of a thriller, and painter's notes. The visual element and thoughts on picture-making are predominant. The artist jokes about his own tendency to hoard newspaper photographs by justifying them as a means of communication when language is a barrier - the more hoarded the greater possibilities for communication through illustrations.
