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.

Among the visual poems in which the limited typography of the typewriter has been relinquished in favour of a highly developed graphic elaboration of the text, one finds one of De Vree’s most famous poems, Revolutie II (1972). The letters are arranged in a circle and each letter is cut in half. The inner half has been shifted slightly to the right in relation to the outer half. This displacement of the word image yields a distorted visual pattern, which, precisely through its disruptive character, summarises the essence of a revolution. Both the word and the concept (break, shift, rotation) are turned into images.
