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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. RV3_009).

The ‘Pathé Baby’ is probably the best-known toy projector and exists in numerous variations, including one with an electric motor. The less usual 9.5mm film format has central film perforations to make maximum use of the width of the film. This affordable format was launched in 1922 by the famous film producers Pathé Frères and was specially aimed at amateurs.
