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.

Guillaume Bijl's Behandelingen [Treatments] are purposeful, detailed scripts played out in both words and images; these also form the basis of Bijls' later “transformative installations”. For the Behandelingen Bijl designs a number of concrete and detailed interactive pathways that lead the visitor through the different stages of a key (but nevertheless mundane) event. For example, his treatments include a variety of topics: Church, Education, Army, Travel, Building, Ambition, Sex, Psychiatry and the 'Sleur van een alledaags Arbeidersleven' [The daily grind of the average blue-collar worker]. Bijl digs into his own personal experiences acquired during his studies and work as a source of inspiration; however, personal experience is not the only thing he draws from. He also employs the know-how he has accumulated in various fields (visual arts, literature, film and theatre).
