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.

Aphrodite’s Girdle was created by the Teresa Creative Union of Artists and sex-workers (Vika Begalska, Alexander Vilkin, Marina Denisova, Taira Dance, Diana Portlend, Sergey Potapov, Karina 'Katwoman' Dulina, Baretta). Vika Begalskaya partnered with sex workers whose efforts tinge a harsh reality with a sense of melancholy, while at the same time giving it an ironic twist. Begalskya's film must be situated within the context of activist, post-feminist works, positioning her work not as a critique of male dominance, but rather as a critique of this critique. Puppet-like scenes with cardboard cut-out figures, paintings and other objects make it clear that these women remain proud and have not lost control over who they are.
