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.

Dmitri Aleksandrovich Prigov

1940 - 2007

Born in Moscow (RU), died in Moscow (RU).

Dmitri Prigov is a particularly influential Russian poet, writer and artist, also known as 'the father of Russian conceptualism'. He is an important representative of the Russian artistic avant-garde and of Muscovite conceptualism of the 1970s and 80s.

In the 1970s, Prigov's art, in which he connects his poetry to performances and installations, comes close to the unofficial art scene. Through a combination of words and visual actions,  installations, performances and video art are created in which the boundaries between genres disappear.

In the Soviet Union, Prigov's literary work circulates as samizdat: self-published editions diffused secretly. His writings are also published internationally, mostly in literary magazines for migrant literature. Only in 1990, during the final phase of the communist era, an official collection of his poems is published in Russia.
