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.

With the phrase ‘art is what makes life more interesting than art’, Filliou continues the idea of the Dada movement, in the early twentieth century, that ‘art is more interesting than life’. The force that drives Filliou’s work and thought is Permanent Creation. He helps to establish various Centres of Permanent Creation, such as the Poïpoïdrome and the Smiling Cedilla. As an alternative to the notion of the avant-garde, he proposes the Eternal Network, also known as ‘La fête permanente’.

Excerpt of the conversation between Robert Filliou (RF) and Irmeline Lebeer (IL), Flayosc, France, August 1976.

IL: So, Création permanente. ‘Permanent Creation.’ We have different sub-sections. First: ‘Term used by Filliou to characterise his activity.’ Second: ‘Centre of Permanent Creation, see “Poïpoïdrome”, see “The Smiling Cedilla”.’

RF: ‘See above’, as we say in English, because we were just talking about the Cedilla. Maybe it will follow.

IL: Third: ‘Spirit presiding over The Smiling Cedilla’. Fourth: ‘See “Toolbox for Permanent Creation”.’
