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.

Momus (Nick Currie)

° 1960

Lives in Osaka (Japan).

Known primarily for his avant-garde music, Momus (aka Nick Currie) was born and educated in Scotland. After gaining a degree in English Literature from Aberdeen University, he moved to London and began a career as a songwriter which has seen the release of almost 30 albums in as many years. From the turn of the century he's developed a parallel career as an artist, holding performance shows in galleries and conducting "unreliable tours" of museums and "emotional lectures" in universities.
