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.

My Father’s Room, 2002 is a painting between figuration and abstraction made by Polish artist Wilhelm Sasnal. Watching through the brushstrokes, which are vividly and obviously deliberately made to be seen, one sees the gradients of grey surface that may slightly evoke the convex surface of an old TV screen. But it is not, this is Sasnal's father’s room, viewed from above, as a ground-plan, and it stays disturbingly empty, giving space to the viewer’s imagination to surmise what’s inside it. A life, the life of Sasnal’s grandfather, within its limits.
