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.

Day by day by day, 2003

In 2001 two Belgian artists decided to combine forces on a joint project: the young Nico Dockx and the more experienced Mark Luyten. Day by day by day is the result of two years of taking pictures and sharing cameras. They took turns using a disposable camera. After one or two shots, the camera was passed back-and-forth until 27 photos were taken and the roll was full. Various persons and places figure as witnesses of a different life. The camera passes hands at appropriate places: a train station, the hall of a hotel or a café in the middle of town. Not just spaces serve as stops along the way; mutual friends are also enlisted as intermediaries in the process. This entirety constitutes a film, a sequence of (always) 27 still images, with an accompanying soundtrack by Kris Delacourt. The presentation is itself a stop along the way for us as viewers, and for Nico Dockx and Mark Luyten as well.
