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.

1947 - 2016

Born in Belgrade (RS), died in Pula (HR).

Mladen Stilinović questioned the deep structures of society that determined the role of the artist as an agent (and captive) of language. He famously said: ‘An artist who doesn’t speak English is not an artist.’ In collages and photographs based on the colours of the Croatian flag he challenges the authority of national symbols. His ‘taxonomical’ installations use seemingly innocuous objects and paintings to critique socialist and neoliberal ideology and expose the unequal and unstable relation between the individual and society. By juxtaposing dislocated signs Stilinović ironically visualises the constants of human powerlessness and suffering.
