M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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: Foundation Gordon Matta-Clark

To keep Office Baroque the 'Foundation Gordon Matta-Clark' was founded in 1979.

When Matta-Clark died young in 1978, Office Baroque appeared to be his only structural intervention that was still standing. The Antwerp art scene, headed by the ICC, launched a campaign to preserve this masterpiece and to integrate it into a yet to be established contemporary art museum in Antwerp. Sadly, despite every effort, Office Baroque could not be saved. The big guns were sent in and in a minimum of time the building was demolished. Antwerp had to wait many years for its museum of contemporary art. However, the collection of the Gordon Matta-Clark Foundation was one of the arguments for the ultimate establishment of the 'MuHKA' in 1985. This collection of artists donations (as Project work coloration: Trafalgar Square Fountains by Nicolas Uriburu shown above ) was a closed entity of works and documents from the late 70s, being the historical basis of the M HKA collection.
