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.

Collection: Collection VAM, Eindhoven (Inv. no. 0767).

Sigmar Polke creates paintings with a nod to current ideas about the origins of artistic inspiration. What is divine, is decided in the human psyche, or is it located in the chemistry of the human body? Polke thinks that when he paints on the canvas creates a relationship of forces which he can not control and that the painting his own destiny. 'Höhere Wesen befahlen...' is primarily an ironic reference to the German romantic tradition in which the 'higher' plays an important role.
