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 / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK007491).

On the request of a lawyer and his wife, Bratkov took a portrait of the lawyer and his dog in his office. The photo is a reference to classic portraiture, in which important individuals were often portrayed in a similarly stylish interior. At a later stage, Bratkov added to this picture another photo of the same interior, but this time a drunk woman is posing in the office, holding a gun. Half 'real', half staged, Bratkov reminds us with this series of the fact that every portrait photo is a miniature piece of theatre.
