M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Like his photos, Bratkov's films are always sharp and almost painfully realistic. In the dramatically titled video Life is Pain Bratkov filmed an Ukrainian prostitute who occasionally makes some extra cash as a chanteuse in a nightclub; her gut-wrenching repertory, bizarre make-up trompe-l’oeuil skin-colored shirt unite to exclaim the basic truth of her act – that life is pain indeed.
