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.

Literary synopsis

This short book traces the early years of Renée Green’s sentimental education, traveling to Mexico, or exploring the bohemian milieu of 1980s New York. In words of the artist Renée Green: ''Camino Road is a book I wrote as a self-conscious hommage to or parody of the "road novel", "bohemia", and artist-rebels, next to it. I'd been thinking about the beat generation, figures like Jack Kerouac, Burroughs, etc. - the mythic construction of the artist personality as rebel and how females, and myself in particular, entered into that. These "beat" sources seemed to form a typical American introduction to the idea of bohemia and of being an artist''.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Camino Road was published as an artist book, in connection with a video presented by Renée Green in the group exhibition 'The Raw and the Cooked' in the Museo Nacional de Arte Moderno Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid. The book is published in English and Spanish, and includes an appendix with photographs and ephemera from Madrid’s 1980s ”Movida”.
