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.

In the mid-Sixties, Tsoclis focuses his interest on the object and creates the series Objects – Situations (1966-1973), with which he gains international recognition. At the time, Nouveau Realisme and Pop Art prevail in Paris while Art Povera is also gaining ground. Tsoclis gets to know the doctrines of these movements, but he handles the object in his own personal way. He uses ready-made objects such as tables, chairs, ladders, doors, slabs, taps, tubes or he constructs real-looking objects, and by using renaissance perspective and the art of trompe l’oeil he creates new, poetic images, which often border on Surrealism. Recognizable objects are transformed and given new meaning via the use of bold color, the way they are situated in the space, and via unexpected combinations.
