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.

235 Important and Less Important Photographs from the Second Half of the 20th Century show images of reality and deal with ordinary subjects. There are smaller series within the larger whole. They often show banal subjects such as a dog in a bath, people dancing at a party, Indians in a shop, and so on. Bijl devotes a lot of attention to the presentation of the photographs. All their frames are the same and they are all the same size. Some of the older photos are discoloured and the pictures were taken from various angles: from a distance, from close up, from below and from above. In many cases one can only see a part of the people in the photos. Bijl shows every facet of our society, and the changes in fashions and interests in the second half of the twentieth century. Leisure, travel, various cultures, sport, dogs and food all make their appearance. He has made a visual inventory of our time and his favourite subject is all things average. He shows us our era and our civilisation.
