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

Onda Corta is a short novel written in stream-of consciousness form in 50 short sections.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

"Onda Corta is a delirious work, with a demanding and magnetic prose, by Pablo Helguera. It is a literary performance of different forms of talk - at once sleepless, unpredictable and entirely dedicated to the exaltation of idiosyncratic subjects; uncontrollable and exposed. [...] Onda Corta creates improbable assemblies in scenes of material and metaphoric transmutations."

- Roberto Tejada, prologue.
