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.

Graphology explored in four episodes the automatisms that may crop up in drawing. The human hand as a seismograph of the inner stirrings, but conversely, the 'unconscious mechanics' of the machine, which imposes itself on the human eye. In what way do graphic reproduction techniques lead a life of their own? A series of exhibitions at the intersection of drawing, photography, printmaking, film and computer graphics. 

The second episode of Graphology explored the impact of typography. With the invention of the art of printing, the manuscript lost its monopoly. At the same time, the automation of writing generated a radical process of individualisation.

With works by artists including Carl Andre, Stefaan Brüggemann, Mekhitar Garabedian, Dean Hughes, Friedrich Nietzsche, Christophe Plantin, Simon Pummell and Salome Schmuki.
