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.

Steppen Police is a still from her film Milk for Lambs. This film depicts the lives of women in the steppes of Kazakhstan, with a stream of references to nomadic mythology, shamanism and the Soviet heritage. It's a romantic, melancholic and at the same time surreal reflection on the brusque cultural development of her homeland.

"These are the kind of images you can very often see in Kazakhstan. Just policemen who are protecting something, because there are some private places in the steppe where you can stay, with nothing around. It might look very surreal. But when you ask him, of course, he has a story and everything becomes very logical." - Almagul Menlibayeva
