M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Ensemble: JAMES LEE BYARS ENSEMBLE

The international renowned American artist James Lee Byars has a remarkable relationship with the M HKA.

From the seventies onward he worked closely together with former director Flor Bex on numerous exhibitions and projects, the works we have in our collection are witnesses of this. Byars is also the artist behind the smallest and the biggest work in the museum.

The three objects below will guide you through the exhibitions, performances and projects that James Lee Byars undertook during his periods of stay in Antwerp.
