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.

Cox's later work is characterised by exhaustive reflections on life and work, expressed in paintings and in his written journal notes, as well.  These are pieces where aspects of his inner life, emotional state and commitment are mutually interwoven. And given his biography, this is not difficult to understand, for a the time Cox suffered from an exhausting manic-depressive breakdown, marked by extreme emotional surges seesawing between periods of hyperactive excitability and deep mental depression. In 1979, Cox endeavors to set down his memories of his father on paper, and this results in the manuscript Nagedachtenis aan Hendricus Maria Cox (In Commemoration of Hendricus Maria Cox). It comes over as an intimate and tranquil dialogue between father and son. Following on from the example of this melancholic look back, in his final years of life Cox returns to memories from childhood, translating these in a number of paintings. In Herinneringen aan mijn kinderjaren (Memories of my Childhood), these early recollections reverberate alongside later vivid impressions of the Arizona deserts.
