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.

Since the mid-eighties Danny Devos has maintained correspondence with convicted serial killers to gain a deeper understanding of their motives. From 1987 onwards he has been  creating objects and installations referencing famous killers and their crimes. The Jockel project is one of his seminal works because it integrates a number of different facets of Devos's method. He provides the viewer with evidence of his study by presenting framed letters of his correspondence with the inmates. The four performances at the site of the four murders bring together the bodily practice of his art and performances with the project. The objects used reference his sculptures and installations.
