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 Maldonado (UY), died in Buenos Aires (AR), born in Buenos Aires (AR), lives in Paris (FR).

The Argentinian architect Uriburu started his career as a painter, but his interest in environmental issues caused him to move on to performance art and actions as a means of raising awareness. In 1968, he famously colored the Canal Grande in Venice green with a biologically innocuous liquid, which would be the first of many colorings across the globe. With this he raises the alarm about the spreading pollution. He gives his indictment expression in fluorescent green, symbol of wealth, youth and the power of nature. At the same time, this color within Uriburu's actions also symbolizes the ecological movement. Green becomes the color of resistance, of protest. In 1974, the ICC invited Uriburu to do one of his colorings in Antwerp, which eventually took place at the Bonaparte dock.
