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.

Himmelfahrt [Ascension], 1992

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0308).

A foreigner who is starting to learn a new language encounters words which he/she begins to translate literally. The German word Fahren means 'to ride'. Durham carved a piece of wood in the form of a mountain with the word *Himmelfahrt* (ascension) written on top. Underneath, he placed a discarded car wheel. In this way, he mixes the two meanings: the literal interpretation (the car wheel) with its ancient connotation (the wood representing the Mount of Olives).
