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.

Eugenio Dittborn

° 1943

Born in Santiago (CL), lives in Santiago (CL).

Eugenio Dittborn was born in Chile in 1943 (making him a thirty-year old witness of the military coup in 1973), and continues to live and work in his native country; it is inevitable that his work should bear the traces of living through Chile’s many political upheavals - in fact, they have often been the source of inspiration for some of the artist’s greatest works. During the Pinochet dictatorship [1973-1990] Dittborn started developing his strategy of so-called “Airmail Paintings”, sending his paintings [often serially executed on large sheets of Kraft paper] around the world via airmail.
