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.

Fransje Killaars' colourful installations are three-dimensional paintings composed of hand-woven carpets, fabrics and strands of yarn in every colour imaginable. The relationship between humans and textile, the powerful impact of colour and the connectivity of textiles with everyday life have all captured Killaars’ imagination. Through the unusual combinations of colour and material, the work causes the viewer to view space in a way that is alien to the everyday gaze. The familiar role that blankets and carpets play in a cosy and homely atmosphere becomes something altogether new in the setting of a museum. An unfamiliar tactile obstacle is created, which alters what is typical of visual perception, forcing, as it were, the eyes to feel, rather than merely see.
