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.

Ensemble: Het Geëngageerde [The Engaged]

To some extent, this is code for ‘politically or socially engaged art’. But only to some extent. Activism in art may also imply physical activity as part of an alternative view of the world, or the subversive questioning of prevailing systems without a goal-orientated agenda for actual (or perhaps rather: quantifiable) political or social change. Engagement is a more generic – but also more generous – term, which captures an attitude and a passion that transcends the individual and therefore has tangible connections to ‘the International’.

Some of the works in this ensemble are shown in Antwerp, while others are exhibited in Eindhoven.
