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.


° 1942

The Indian People’s Theatre Association [I.P.T.A.] was formed during a crucial phase of 20th Century Indian history. Events including World War II, the famine of 1943 and the struggle for Independence formed the backdrop for its emergence as a leading element of the Cultural Front of the Communist Party of India [C.P.I.]. The I.P.T.A. addressed the vexed and often contradictory questions of decolonisation, the fight against fascism, and poverty; as in the play Nabanna [harvest] where widespread starvation contrasted with the anomaly of a good harvest redirected to support the war effort, is shown through everyday lives of ordinary people.
