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 New York (US), lives in Antwerp (BE), born in Delft (NL).

The Dutch artist Jan Henderikse was born in Delft in 1937 and trained at the Vrije Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten (Free Academy of Visual Art) in The Hague. He has lived all over the world, and now divides his time between Antwerp and Brooklyn. Henderikse was a member of the Nul (Zero) group founded in the 1960s, which pursued a rigorous art in contrast to the then dominant gestural abstraction. The Nul artists often worked repetitively and in monochrome, sometimes with industrialized materials that were incorporated unmodified. While they retained the ‘framework’ of painting, they were viewed as anti-painting or Anti-Peinture, as the title of their final exhibition in 1962 at Antwerp’s Hessenhuis put it. Nul’s five members were all represented: Armando, Herman de Vries, Jan Henderikse, Henk Peeters and Jan Schoonhoven, along with a whole series of other artists, among them their hero Lucio Fontana.
