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.

° 1956

Lives in New York (US), born in Santiago (CL).

"I became an artist because I do not understand the world". Chilean-born American artist Alfredo Jaar is known internationally for his conscientious work in the field of photography, oscillating between monumentalist imagery on the one hand, and photo-based or ‘meta-photographic’ installations on the other. These works often reflect upon (or self-consciously mirror) the deeply problematic truth claims of the photographic image, whose mechanical reproduction further complicates the issue of testimonial authenticity.
