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.

In 1988, Luc Tuymans painted the four-part Die Zeit (The Time), referring to WW II, including a portrait of Nazi headpiece Reinhard Heydrich, two spinach tablets as well as a cityscape. This cityscape was later in 1994 reframed in the silkscreen entitled Die Zeit.

Working in series or with multipart works results here in a cinematographic sensation in the form of stills. Earlier in 1982, Luc Tuymans stopped painting for 3 years; 'The first videos were not about; just everyday images that struck me. [...] I kept on cutting and editing until the editing eventually became more important than the film itself '. Afterwards, these experiments continued to influence the indirect approach to subject and composition. Timeless and alienating.
