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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7439_M295).

The series of prints 7 Childlike Uses of Warlike Material was made by Robert Filliou in collaboration with Hartmut Kaminski in Düsseldorf, where Filliou resided at the time. For this photo series they worked with objets trouvés, just ordinary objects from everyday life. A text is applied to each photograph, identifying the objects as a variety of potential ordnance, with a suggested use alongside. In the accompanying text, Filliou muses on how he can banish this war material to imagined places: "I can put the submarine on the mountains. the missile on the moon. the uniforms around the stars." Filliou sees the work as a “contribution to the art of peace”. The series is a playful and poetic ode to the childlike power of imagination.
