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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK3962).

Several pieces in the first important collection featuring concrete-visual poetry, *Zimprovisaties*, display a degree of engagement. This is due to the fact that this collection gathers together works created between 1963 and 1968. Several of them tie in with the concrete and visual poetry in terms of technique, i.e., the ‘typogram’. In *Wie straft wie?*, De Vree uses the typewriter to draw several flags, including those of the US, Japan, the UK, France and Russia. Above the flags he has typed the sentence ‘right or wrong, it’s my country’, and centred across the middle of the canvas, in bold letters, ‘wie straft wie?’. In this poem De Vree takes aim at the nationalism and imperialism of the superpowers.
