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

Crimeways tells the tale of New York under siege by an underground band of aesthetic criminals who threaten to destroy a landmark in the name of art. Attempts are made to save the city from these artistic fascists and their bad taste. (Authors of the novels: Rita McBride, Matthew Licht, Geoff Nicholson, Jack Pretzer, Roger Duffy, Dana Bauer, Gordon Wallace, Nick Briggs.)

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Crimeways is the third book in the Ways series – anthologies of anonymously written stories which, put together, are "novels" that challenge traditional notions of narrative genres. In this case, the detective novel. Conceived by conceptual artist Rita McBride the book is co-published by Printed Matter, the Whitney Museum of American Art and Arsenal Pulp Press.
