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.

Neue Freunde (Hot Hot Spatzi) [New Friends (Hot Hot Birdie)], 2011

Painting, 2 x (126 x 86 cm), 1 x (196 x 136 cm).


Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7797_M501).

Kati Heck mostly creates large paintings with colourful assemblies of figures, objects and symbols, which together seem to narrate some complicated story. With references to comic books, films and pornography, Heck is clearly inspired by popular culture, but her own experiences are a point of reference for her as well - the figures she depicts are usually modelled after people she met in her own life. Heck doesn't want the stories of her images to be understood at once; most important is the imaginative power of the paintings.

"The more I tell you, the more the eye of the viewer will be directed and the fewer he or she can see".
