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

Four young people fight in New York against the omnipresence of the surveillance system. Deeper and deeper they get lost in a hall of mirrors of virtuality, fiction and reality. There are three deaths and a decision at the end. Ten years after the 9/11 attacks New York goes back to normalcy, and a new World Trade Center is being built - the 1WTC. Tom, a former employee of the U.S. military intelligence, creates the Foundation of the building. His girlfriend Jennifer, a gallery owner, meets the German artist Mikael Mikael in the library. Together with the mysterious hacker Asanta, they document the ubiquitous surveillance in the city. When Tom receives a mysterious order of his former superiors, the line between simulation and reality starts to blur.
