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.

“When I put a stone on an auto the violence is humorous cartoon violence. I do not think I am personally being violent. (Must I say that I am not advocating violence?) Perhaps in some small way this kind of work is metonymic more that metaphoric. Perhaps the auto comes to represent, not ‘civilization’ but culture in general, or – us. In that case the stone does indeed stand for “nature.” But that is not a translation of the piece. There is no translation of the piece.” [full text here]
