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.

Momus herr f

Literary synopsis

Herr F (Everything Living Forever Is Screaming Forever) is a literary adaptation of the Faust story by the artist, musician and author Momus. The hero of the novel, a failed writer, uses his pact with the devil to loose upon humanity the world’s most boring book. Herr F is an experimental narrative about bargaining for immortality soaked in abstracted ideas of German-language literature, drawn mostly from English translations of twentieth-century figures like Brecht, Kafka, Rilke, Klee, Fassbinder, and Adorno.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

On January 14, 2015, Momus presented a staged reading of excerpts from Herr F in The Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, at the book’s premiere. Questions around the role of Gretchen were answered to the accompaniment of a painting performance by the artist and singer Sarah Midori Perry. One of the book’s characters, Hagen Verleger, a graphic artist who rises to pontifical stature in Rome, designed a cover for Herr F live before the audience.
