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.

Lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (United States), born in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin (United States).

[David Robbins](http://www.davidrobbinsartist.com/) is an artist and author. His work explores areas of overlap between art, entertainment, and comedy while advancing a transformation of the position of the artist in the visual system. As an artist he is best known for his 1986 work entitled *Talent*, eighteen "entertainer's headshots" of contemporary artists including Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Jenny Holzer and others, as well as *The Ice Cream Social*, a project comprising installations, performances, a novella, a TV pilot, and numerous other media. Among his books are *Concrete Comedy: An Alternative History of Twentieth-Century* (2011) and *High Entertainment* (2009), both of which propound what Robbins terms "alternatives to art."
