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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp.

For the series Cairoscapes, Maamoun photographs the many dresses with floral patterns seen daily on the streets of Cairo. For Maamoun these comprise not only a surrogate for nature in an urban environment; they are also a point of calm amidst the city's harshness. Cairoscapes is assembled from panoramic photographs, presenting eye-level cityscapes of the everyday that are both fleeting and intimate.
