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.

Pedro Barateiro

° 1979

Born in PT, lives in Lisbon (PT).

The work of Pedro Barateiro asks questions about what kind of identity an artist can make for himself when he lives and works in an ocean of readily available data. The artist navigates with necessary precision between the role of the connoisseur (of art history and contemporary mass culture) and that of the commentator (of colonial histories and current politics). Barateiro is convinced that you need to keep things simple so that complexity can find its own way back into them.
