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: Poëzie, taal en woordspelingen [Poetry, language, and wordplay]

M HKA is in possession of a large ensemble of Jan Vercruysse's graphic works and prints. Most of Vercruysse's prints are a form of visual poetry. They are mostly minimalistic in design and testify to great precision and eye for detail. The prints are often based on wordplay, a peculiar contrast or an ambiguous statement. In addition, they are full of references to art history and philosophy.

Jan Vercruysse was actually mainly occupied with visual poetry during his youth, before he started his career as a visual artist. Nonetheless, his love for language and poetry continues to be a constant throughout his oeuvre. It is most visible in his graphic works, but traces can also be found in the double-layered wordplay of the titles and inscriptions of his sculptural works.
