M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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

McGrotty and Ludmilla first appeared as a radio play on the 18th of July, 1975. The book is based on the tale of Aladdin, with the 'magic lamp' conferring great power a secret government report. McGrotty finds himself promoted at great speed, eventually becoming Prime Minister, by being so intensely unlikable that people simply want to get rid of him. The gift of a photographic memory means that after an accident with a three-bar electric fire, the version in his head is the only copy of the report in the world.
