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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7845).

With And They Still Seek The Traces Of Blood, Quereshi translates the aesthetic of miniature painting into the context of a monumental installation.  He creates an environment with 20,000 large sheets of paper.  The sheets, printed on both sides with images from the artist's earlier floor paintings, are crumpled up into a gigantic heap.  Taken together, the sheets of paper may be seen as representations of the numerous cases of conflict and violence taking place every day throughout the world.  The action of crumpling suggests a 'throwaway' ignorance - the fact that such happenings for the most part pass as unnoticed or ignored.
