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.

° 1963

Born in Mortsel (), lives in Brussels ().

Visual artist Ana Torfs was born in Belgium in 1963. The relation or tension between text/language and image plays a central role in Torfs' work, and with it all the related processes of visualisation, interpretation and translation. She enables a topical and authentic perception of the scattered remains from our cultural and political history. Existing texts and/or images are often used as a starting point for her poignant works, which condense into precisely composed collages or montages, suffused with elliptical allusions. In her installations, Torfs uses a variety of media, ranging from slide projections, sound, photography, and film to xerography, off-set printing, Jacquard weaving, and silkscreen. Solo shows of Torfs' work include exhibitions at Generali Foundation in Vienna (2010), at K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf (2010), at Sprengel Museum in Hannover (2008), at argos centre for art and media in Brussels (2007), at daadgalerie, Berlin (2006), at GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst in Bremen (2006), and at Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels (2000). She has also developed a web project for Dia Art Foundation in New York (2004). Among her many group exhibitions, Torfs participated in the Sharjah Biennial 11 (2013), Manifesta 9 Genk, Belgium (2012), Montreal Biennial 2 (2000) and Lyon Biennal 3 (1995). A Prior Magazine dedicated an issue to Torfs' work in 2004. Torfs was awarded a DAAD scholarship (Berlin) in 2005. Ana Torfs studied communication science at the University of Leuven (1981-1986) and film & video at the Sint-Lukas University College of Art and Design in Brussels (1986-1990). She lives and works in Brussels. [More](www.anatorfs.com)
