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.

Literary synopsis

The Revenge for Love is a satire with a difference. Not only is the novel considered Lewis’ best, if not his most typical, but also it is a much gentler book, one in which the characters assume a human dimension often missing in his other satires. The book is divided into seven parts and begins in Spain, where Percy Hardcaster, a British Communist organizer, is awaiting trial for his political activities. While there is a plot, involving forging paintings and murky politics around the Spanish Civil War, Lewis uses much of the action to mock talentless artists, political activists, particularly those on the Left, and, as in his other books, the ill-informed bourgeois.
