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.

Ensemble: Against Architecture, Against Belief

“Architecture makes you believe that it is the city when in fact our intellectuality and our desire for freedom is the city. Architecture says no, you’re not the city, the state’s project is the city. The state owns the city and you can build in that architectural space. And what I want—as a deliberate foreigner—I want to challenge that, to say no, we are the city, the architecture is something that we just have to move around—no matter how good or how old it is.” [full text here]

"I quickly grasped how religious much architecture in Europe is, steeped in monumentalism and belief. European art seemed like a servant to architecture in a system designed for enforcing religious belief." [full text here]
