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.

Antoni Muntadas

° 1942

Born in Barcelona (ES), lives in New York (US).

Antonio Muntadas subjects images from the mass media to critical sociological research. He does so by studying various information channels from our contemporary culture, such as television, newspapers, magazines, advertising and the Internet. Public institutions, the art world and the art status as well are highlighted and questioned. Muntadas shows how we are manipulated by these structures and and how mass media are handling language and images in order to influence our personal privacy. With his work, he also touches on the dynamics and the impact of  information flows and viewing habits.

As his career progresses, Muntadas' interest shifts to wider social and cultural issues. He continues to criticise all kinds of power institutes, but expands his research to various fields, such as architecture, design and media. For this purpose, he develops interactive multimedia that are often site-specific, but which transform as well, returning in a new presentation, a different form. Therefore, for the artist, the connection between his works is very important.
