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. BK6886_M147).

The title of the work refers to the Fridericianum, one of the main locations at the Documenta exhibitions organised evary five years at Kassel in Germany. This installation consists of twelve transparent forms made of synthetic resin scattered over a large wooden table. They act as lenses that reflect and distort the surrounding space. In this way they manipulate our perception. Like real drops of water their planoconvex shapes have the effect of magnifying, whereby they become intensely permeated with the colour of the surroundings and the refraction of the light. We might therefore also interpret this work as a critique of knowledge and perception.
