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.

Alain Arias-Misson

° 1936

Born in Brussels (BE), lives in Madrid (ES).

Alain Arias-Misson (1936, Belgium, lives in Madrid) is influenced by the happenings of the early 1960s when he returns to Brussels from the US in 1968. He is seen as the inventor of the public poem, an extension of visual poetry but distinct from the happening in that it is performed outside of any artistic or aesthetic context: in the streets or on the beach. Arias-Misson’s public poems are both subversive and liberating, both provocative and playful.
