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.

Vika Begalska

° 1965

Born in Dnipro (UA), works in Moscow (RU).

Victoria Begalskaya (also Vika Begalska) is originally from Dnepropetrovsk (now Dnipro), Ukraine. She graduated from the Kharkiv Academy of Design and Arts, and she now works in Moscow as a painter and film artist. In her films, Begalskaya makes a parody of familiar situations taken from daily life in Russia and Ukraine. Creating mocking, folkloric montages, she provides the viewer with a pitiless perspective on what social reality looks like in the Post-Soviet Era. In 2014, she founded Teresa Creative Union of Sex-Workers and Artists, a joint project in partnership with streetwalkers from Saint Petersburg. Together they developed a puppet theatre using cardboard cut-out figures, paintings and objects, where encounters between sex workers and their clients are staged, given a shape in which the tragedy of the theme always hovers between the moral and the cheerfully debauched.
