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.

Untitled is an installation consisting of three parts: a painting, a sculpture and a pedestal, each individually referring to West's artistic development. The sculpture is a throwback to the Paßstücke: small, interactive, white-painted sculptures in mesh, plaster and iron that may be used as body extensions. The painting refers to the characteristic style of West's painting from the end of the 1970s: monochrome and in a thin layer, whereby the material comes through in all its fragility. The pedestal is the installation's connecting factor, and ensures that the whole goes to evoke an interior. By providing the pedestal with the same rough and, equally, fragile aspect as have the other components, it transcends its purely presentational and protective function.
