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.

° 1979

Born in Antwerp (), born in Antwerp (BE).

The Antwerp artist Dennis Tyfus (b. 1979) produces a varied visual oeuvre that is not always exclusively intended for museums or to be collected or shown. As an artist, musician and publisher he produces and distributes drawings, paintings and graphic work, as well as video installations, sculptures and music. This range is expanded with self-designed posters, record covers, flyers, stickers and tattoos. His divergent practice is characterised by the artist's desire to maintain a great street credibility in combination with an anarchist attitude towards the formal contemporary art world. His painting and drawing work is a concentrated activity with a lot of attention for colour and composition. With pen and markers he creates colourful cartoonish drawings with absurd scenes or dialogues.
