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.

Literary synopsis

In 2007 Jill Magid came back to New York City after living five years abroad. She rented an apartment in Brooklyn and took the subway often. Everyone was in transit, except the officers. She approached one and asked him to search her. She began to accompany this officer on many of his nighttime posts. He was not sure if he could trust her, and she was not sure if she should trust him. They continued to meet despite this. Magid kept record of their meetings and logged them in different forms.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Jill Magid created a multimedia installation including video, prints, photographs, sculpture, sound, and her artist's novel Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy (police code for 'love'). The project was exhibited at Gagosian Gallery (27 June–24 August 2007).
