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.

Literary synopsis First published in 1933 by Obelisk Press, *The Young and the Evil* tells the story of Julian (Ford) and Karel (Tyler) and their friends, somewhere between the gay bars and poetry scenes of Greenwich Village, and the drag balls of Harlem. This queer coterie spends much of the time getting drunk at parties, swapping beds and apartments, avoiding the hostile attention of police and sailors that cruise the parks, meeting up at all-night ‘coffeepots’, generally looking fabulous in make-up and gowns, and – occasionally – creating art.
