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.

'I did the GOD Public Poem in Brussels in 1968; it was a clearer fusion of page and street, of letters and human form. The meaning was simple enough: with the g in my right hand and the d in my left, and the "Poet" as cipher or null, I bracketed one "class" of site after the other throughout the City to portray the disappearance of GOD and the City as God in his place: the RR station which breathed the citizens at 8 am, the Cathedral, the Museum of Fine Arts, a Funeral Parlor, the Stock Exchange, a Work Site, "Nature" (The Park), the great Galeries de la Reine as "Commerce" etc. The "poem" was still static and solitary, but the sense of a "reading" of the street more manifest. These were my first steps in an attempt to create a literacy of the street.' - Alain Arias-Misson on The G D Public Poem
