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.

The Circle of CA presents a synthetic overview of Monastyrski’s influential career in performance art. On two video monitors installed back to back in the middle of the exhibition space, the visitor can view the remaining documentary video footage from the performances. Central in this presentation, however, stands the absence of their representation, a spatial void. On the surrounding walls, a linear sequence of A3-size paper sheets bearing a series of numbers corresponds to the chronological development of Monastyrski’s performance art trajectory, while also highlighting the artist’s interest in numerical systems and the absolute poetry of mathematics. The numbers refer to the time that passed between any two performances. Thus this in-between time is represented, expressed in months. The first number and the last number being exactly identical allows time’s straightforward arrow to suddenly become a circle, closing in upon itself - Monastyrski's work seems almost custom-made for M HKA's unique circular space.
