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.

Monsters are inoffensive, Fluxus Postcards, 1967

Multiple, 10.8 x 16 cm.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK7440_M296).

The title of one of the cards can be understood as a creator statement about the object: "Men call pubic hair pornography but / monsters are innofensive".

Originally these postcards were presented in a clear plastic box but today they are presented in a dark brown envelope. 3 postcards have the name of one of the three artists; Roland Topor, Daniel Spoerri and Robert Filliou. The other cards are edited images such as a fleetingly drawn portrait into which holes were made where the eyes should be. Fingers were inserted through these and this action was captured and photographed. Another postcard shows drawings over photographic images. The drawings are by Topor, the manipulations of the photographic images by Filliou and Spoerri. Vera Spoerri photographed the final result.
