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.

Duwen [Push] shows huge refrigerated counter full of pre-packaged meat. The viewer sees the case from the top. A person's hand presses into the plastic foil wrapped around one of the meat packages. This bizarre perspective, combined with the packages of raw meat, regimented in orderly rows according to the type of meat, and the rusty shades of the tiled floor turn this photograph into a piece that could almost be called abstract. Duwen highlights the bizarre act of “pushing” to an even greater extent through the tight, geometric background that dominates the piece. The only glimpse the viewer has of the character is an arm, a lock of hair, a shoulder strap and a shoe. The space Duwen occupies is in itself a kind of vacuum: there is no plot and there is no rhyme or reason to the story.
