M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Nina Papaconstantinou

Nina Papaconstantinou studied Greek Literature at Athens University and Fine Arts at Camberwell College of Arts in London in 2001. In her work, she explores the relationship of language with art. Via a time-consuming form of ‘manual labor’ Papaconstantinou reproduces excerpts from texts onto the picture-plane proposing a different way of reading and enjoying them. By superimposing layers of drawing, illegible pieces of handwriting, blanks, spaces and accumulated writings and marks, the artist cancels out the text’s code of communication and allows the viewer’s eye to travel over the text’s ‘textures’, and to question its hidden ‘history’.

She has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions (Athens Biennale, 2009, ARCO, Madrid, 2004, Nina Papaconstantinou – Instead of Writing, National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, 2011, Drawing Time, Reading Time, The Drawing Center, New York, 2013 et al.).
