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 Gobi Test consist of two complementary video’s signalling a quest for deeper meaning and more open space. Both *Gobi Test. Summer (The Gobi Test, or the Unbearable Charm of Mongolia)* from 2004, and Gobi Test. Winter (The Gobi Test, or the Unbearable Charm of Mongolia) from 2005, exude the semidocumentary aura of a reality TV show reporting on daily life as it may still be lived on the vast steppes of the Russian Far East. They are empathetic amateur documents in which the artist further develops his programmatic interest in humankind and the animal kingdom in varying states of “wilderness”. Both works can be shown either separately or as films projected onto either side of one centrally located projection screen.
