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

Narrator and protagonist is Sir Michael “Snooty” Kell-Imrie, an aristocratic Scots naturalist and behaviorist, author of Big Game of the Great Deeps and People Behaving. Kell-Imrie’s war wounds have left him with a wooden leg, a silver plate in his skull, a pension, and leisure to pursue his researches into human frailty — both in the beds of his London mistresses and in the remote corners of the globe. Couched in the most sparkling prose, this philosophical farce transfixed by violence promenades Snooty, the heir to the showman of The Wild Body, from Mayfair to Southern France and ultimately Persia.
