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.

In his poesia visiva, De Vree also makes use of a collage technique in which drawing, photograph and typography collectively shape the poem. *Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf* shows a sketch of a dancing couple whose heads are photographs of Richard Nixon and Leonid Brezhnev. The text printed on their clothes reads “Watergate” and “Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf”. The title is borrowed from the eponymous play by Edward Albee (the remarkable film adaptation of which starred Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor). De Vree is here alluding to the love/hate relationship between the two superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union.
