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.

Mobile Medium University (Floating U.I.A) is one of Deleu’s first architectural proposals (1972; M HKA has the ‘revisited’ version, 1982). The idea was to use three brightly painted aircraft carriers (this was the time of the Vietnam War) for a perpetual tour of Antwerp University College’s entire activities. This theme of mobility and displacement is present in Deleu’s Proposals (1972–1980), four of which are now in the M HKA collection. The series formulates outlandish but credible anarchic approaches to issues still waiting to be addressed, such as the environment (e.g. city agriculture), the social contract (e.g. non-programmed TV broadcasts) or public memory (e.g. re-cycling historical monuments as social housing).
