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.

From 1988 Bervoets his work sobers up and becomes visibly more austere. This is also reflected in his self-portraits. Zelfportret in huiskamer is an example of his ‘White Series’: the white surface of the canvas is just as important as the areas covered with paint. Bervoet’s home environment and family situation is another recurrent subject matter. For him, family life is both a pain and the ultimate bliss. In his many etchings and paintings on this theme we encounter simple compositions with just a few centrally located and almost linear figures.
