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.

Exhibition: EXTRA MUROS: Visite Herzele – Beyond words

M HKA, Herzele

Under the umbrella term Visite, the M HKA - in collaboration with LOCUS, the nerve centre for libraries, cultural and community centres and local cultural policy - organizes exhibitions outside the museum on a regular basis. It is the M HKA’s wont to break down the museum walls and encourage dialogue. Visite is more than a loan: the move of the works of the M HKA to the smaller towns is a reason for cultural professionals and local authorities to develop a vision on contemporary art.

From 04.26.2015 to 04.04.20105, a number of key works from the M HKA collection moved to Herzele. Based on the uniqueness of both the works from the M HKA collection, and the various locations of the exhibition, a concept grew that originated in the relevance and significance of the artworks. Contemporary art can be poignant, repellent, sensory or philosophical, but is, above all, an invitation to engage in communication.

With art, which is first and foremost a means of communication, words are obvious, but not always in the first instance. The first impression precedes words and interpretation. "What we feel about a work is often difficult to clearly describe, it is ‘beyond words’. This was, in fact, seized as the title of the exhibition: Voor(bij) woorden (Beyond Words).

The campaign was conducted on the basis of a work by Léa Lublin, where she explored what art can be through questions. It is art with words, but also with question marks. Words attract new words and show us how they often fail. The source, namely art itself, both precedes this and goes beyond it.
