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.

Exhibition: EXTRA MUROS: Visite Diest

M HKA & Stad Diest, Diest

27 November 2014 - 21 December 2014


Under the umbrella termVisite, the M HKA – in collaboration with LOCUS, the hub for libraries, cultural and community centres and local cultural policy - regularly organised exhibitions outside the museum. From 27.11.2014 to 21.12.2014, a number of key works of the M HKA collection were moved to the Citadel in Diest. 

Artists reflected on the past and explored the prospects of this great site. Twenty professional artists were inspired by the site and created new work for a specific spot of the citadel. Additionally, artworks from the collection of the M HKA were borrowed in order to engage in dialogue with this military gem.

You could enjoy the contemporary art in itself, but also the new interpretation the artists gave the premises and site. A challenging initiative of contemporary art and military heritage, which also required the visitors to change their ways of observing and thinking about the future of this site.
