M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Trotation, 1992-2011

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0512).

The work Trotation aims to rectify the imbalance between the northern and southern hemispheres. In this piece, the artist demonstrates how the Earth turns on its own axis (rotation) while also orbiting around the Sun (translation), and whereby those closer to the equator make a larger revolution than those closer to the poles.  By adding a third deliberate rotation (trotation) to this natural order of things, his machine intends to remedy the imbalance by addition of this third spin, and thus re-establish equilibrium. Together with members of MAONO 0201234, Katambayi searches for ways to have this third rotational force become reality and undo the world's imbalances.
