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.

Belf(e)ast, 1971

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK3953).

In his poesia visiva De Vree generally incorporates photographic material in the form of collages, accompanied on occasion by an ironic or satirical commentary, which means to address the viewer’s conscience and awareness by triggering all kinds of associations. Belf(e)ast was composed in the wake of Bloody Sunday. De Vree here superimposes two photographs: the upper picture shows two British soldiers on patrol with their rifles at the ready, while the lower picture shows a row of detainees with their hands against a wall. Between the two photographs, the word ‘Belfast’ has been ironically distorted into ‘Belf(e)ast’.
