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.

Allan McCollum

° 1944

Lives in New York (), born in Los Angeles ().

The sculptural practice of American artist Allan McCollum is grounded in a clinical commentary upon one of the great critical quandaries of art in the post-modern era: the erosion of the traditional concept of the artwork’s aura under the pressure of an ever-expanding apparatus of mass production. His work thereby becomes an exemplary hybrid of hieratic painterly ideals, industrial image (re)production, and the poppy charm of Appropriation Art – the defining critical presence in the early eighties’ east coast art scene.
