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.

For the 2015 INBOX presentation, Wout Vercammen reissued his vividly-coloured silkscreen prints based on his original works from 1972. Orgasme-strijder [Orgasm Warrior] is part of a series of images made up of collected news items from various newspapers and magazines.  For the 2015 reissue, Vercammen placed what were once separate images on top of one another, creating a cohesiveness in terms of content and causing the images' internal discourse to be even more explicit. War, religion, the sexual revolution and the capitalist system are all addressed in Vercammen’s series.
