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.

François Curlet's cherished medium is the multiple: the democratic dimension of this type of art, which is easy to reproduce, is a theme that often recurs throughout his oeuvre. In Objet publicitaire from 2004, Curlet appropriated the ultra-basic no-frills aesthetic of the generic Derby (Delhaize) brand to produce his own private publicity campaign, adorning various objects with the inscription “Curlet, publicité en 10 ex.” – in this case, the traffic sign was effectively produced in an edition of ten. All copies were subsequently sold off to finance the production of a catalogue looking exactly like the sign; one copy of the catalogue was also acquired by the museum.
