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.

Jan Henderikse was among the members of the Nul-groep ('zero group'), which was founded in 1960. The Nul artists worked in a monochrome and repetitive fashion. Henderikse, because of the freedom and playfulness of his actions and the use of waste materials, was the least severe of the Nul group. The work Houten groentekisten ('Wooden vegetable crates') can be seen as a critical or ironic reference to consumer society, on the one hand, but on the other hand it also testifies to a selfless love for the simple things in the world around us.
