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

A cricket team made up of a group of young artists and writers is formed by circuitous means during the spring of 1917 - the Assassins C.C, whose members exchange, discover and distribute texts, numbers, words and works.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

The novel relates to elements of David Price’s practice that attempt to 'write the visual', and elements of his art-theory research that attempt to 'visualize writing'. It also describes (in disguised or coded forms) works made by Price, works made by friends and collaborators, and events that have informed and at times generated his art practice.  The Fielders has a parallel, secret work, which contains all of the notes made during the writing of the novel. There are very few copies of it, and these copies have been privately printed. They have been placed surreptitiously on the shelves of a few bookshops favoured by the author, in England and elsewhere on the continent of Europe. If you are the reader then you have been given an unwanted key to a lock that you may not have wished to open.
