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

In October 1947 Gaston Gallimard agrees to publish a work defined as a novel in the form of a memoir. L’Agrégation d’un Nom et d’un Messie, about which Georges Bataille wrote some pages in his magazine Critique: "The life of the young Isou is that of any teenager rotten by literature (and by unmentionable knowledge), but projected through the world by an impudence that shakes up - and wants to shake up: Isou is infinitely rude, immoral and irrational."
