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.

Hermann Goepfert

A.R.55, 1964

Sculpture, 120 x 100 x 10 cm.

Collection: Private Collection, Antwerp.

Hermann Goepfert (1926-1982) starts making his revolving, white or two-colored objects (stereo’s) in 1958. He adds elements outside the sculpture’s surface to lend a concrete presence to the light. Initially, in 1960, these take the form of reflecting objects against a white background. Later he produces kinetic reflectors against a background of polished metal. Goepfert is in contact with the Zero group; he also mounts exhibitions featuring the ‘new tendencies’. Working with the architect J.P. Hölzinger, from 1965 he works on larger projects integrating art and architecture.
