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.

° 1969

Lives in Antwerp (BE), born in Seoul (KR).

Vanessa Van Obberghen (°1969) uses different media to reflect upon questions such as perception, migration and integration. Her works are concerned with the role of the 'document,' and the misunderstandings that arise when these come to be translated. This way Van Obberghen makes the glances and points-of-view themselves into the subject of her observations. In her oeuvre, Van Obberghen create space and time for viewers to call their own prejudices into question.
