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.

Treff [Encounter], 1992

Sculpture, 215 x 205 x 107 cm.


Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / donation of the artist (2004) (Inv. no. S0307).

The work *Treff* ('Meeting') was part of the ensemble [*An Approach in Love and Fear*](http://ensembles.mhka.be/items/2514) (Documenta IX, Kassel, Germany, 1992). In that ensemble, Durham showed elements from various historical periods that enter in a dialogue with each other, that meet each other. This artwork, a drawing on a cardboard bearing the word 'Treff' is attached to a sculpture by means of two visible screws. Durham calls into question our fixed values regarding a painting: What does 'finished' mean? How's the work to be hung? What's a frame? Which is the size of the painting within the frame?
