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.

A young man collects garbage from the ground in what looks like an American highway. Next, we see the same garbage pieces assembled on collages hanging on the walls of a gallery during a vernissage. The young man collects two big chunks of money from the gallerist, burns up his trailer and boards on a plane to France.

The Pursuit of Happiness is listed as one of three "unalienable rights" in the U.S. Declaration of Independence, together with “life” and “liberty”.
