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.

The M HKA collection is always expanding. With Recent acquisitions, M HKA showcased purchases that help shape our excisting collection. When new work is bought, consideration is given to the avant-garde tradition in Antwerp since the 1960s, the present multipolar world, the importance of the ‘performative’ aspect, and the socially engaged dimension of contemporary art. Also the nature and role which images have today plays a part in this. Important works of both national and African, Asian and North and South American artists have enriched our collection in the past few years.

We also got some key artists from the exhibition to speak via ARTtube, the online video channel of 15 Belgian and Dutch museums. The videos provide insights into the artistic work process of leading artists.

Recent acquisitions gave an overview of the M HKA collection, which is being developed around three main pillars: the image, action and society.

Artists:  Victor Alimpiev & Marian Zhunin, Carla Arocha, Pedro Barateiro, Teresa Burga, Olga Chernysheva, Jan Cox, Jan De Cock, Jan De Lauré, Dmitry Gutov, Craigie Horsfield, Nikita Kadan, Jean Katambayi, Maha Maamoun, Taus Makhacheva, Kerry James Marshall, Panamarenko, Imran Quereshi, Ayman Ramadan, Bart Stolle and Narcisse Tordoir in collaboration with Alioune Bâ & Brehima Koné, Rinus Van de Velde, Vanessa van Obberghen, Richard Venlet, Wout Vercammen and Franz West.
