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.

Paul Bogaers

° 1961

Lives in Tilburg (Netherlands).

Association and suggestion play an important role in the work of visual artist and photographer Paul Bogaers (Tilburg, The Netherlands, 1961). In his combination of photographs –his own as well as found snapshots, postcards and other pre-existing images– he invites the viewer to perceive surprising new links and meanings. But equally in Bogaers’ individual photographs, associations are being revealed that generally remain unnoticed behind the façade of the common and insignificant. In addition to his photographic work, Paul Bogaers is also active as a writer. He specialises in the collage method: texts that originate from the combination of found sentences, collected from various sources. So far this method has resulted in the novels Tropenwee (Tropical Illness, 1992), Onderlangs (Down Below, 2007), and further to publications in various literary magazines and several catalogue texts.
