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.

Léa Lublin

1929 - 1999

Born in Brest (PL), died in Paris (FR), lives in Buenos Aires (AR), lives in Paris (FR).

Argentine artist Léa Lublin belongs to a long list of cultural producers and intellectuals who, for most of the sixties and seventies, decided to exchange the political instability of their Latin American home countries for the relative prosperity and security of Western Europe, adding a tinge of political urgency and existential, nomadic anxiety to the post-conceptual art practices that were then in full bloom in their newly adopted host countries. Lublin spent many years in Paris, where she was able to further immerse herself in the Surrealist legacy, the defining pedagogical experience of her art career; growing up in Buenos Aires, she must surely have been aware of Marcel Duchamp’s short but much-publicized sojourn in the Argentine capital. Sometime in the mid-seventies, Lublin started to make regular trips to Antwerp to partake in ICC’s performance art program, and on one of these visits she exhibited a piece of white cloth containing a questionnaire made up of questions such as What is art?, wrapped around the statue of Rubens on Antwerp’s Groenplaats. This work was first shown again in the historical survey show “Dear ICC” in 2004, alongside a similar questionnaire-based work by Belgian artist Daniël Dewaele.
