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.

Haim Sokol

° 1973

Works in Moscow (RU), lives in Moscow (RU), born in Archangelsk (RU).

Haim Sokol is an installation, sculpture, and video artist whose practice addresses the dramatic social histories of Russia and Eastern Europe. Though many of his works teeter on the edge of fiction and fantasy, Sokol roots his use of literary allusion in historical reality and the legacy of major 20th century uprisings, revolutions, massacres, and genocides. By compounding the grim realities of urban life with the complexities of exile and socio-political diaspora, Sokol’s works effectively capture experiences of alienation, isolation and disrupted communication. 

He has participated in the 2nd Kyiv Biennial named School of Kyiv  (2015), the 1st Indian Biennale (Kochi-Muziris, 2012), the 3rd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2009), and other exhibitions in Russia and internationally. Sokol is a graduate of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (1996 BA, 2004 MA) and the Moscow Institute of Contemporary Art (2007), currently he teaches at the Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia in Moscow. He is a nominee for Innovation Prize (2008, 2014) and the winner of Special Stella Art Foundation Prize (2009).
