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.

Herkisting [Re-Casing], 2004

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0304).

The installation Herkisting (Re-casing) is a good example of Honoré δ'O's continuous attempts at achieving participation and interaction with his audience. Viewers are invited to activate the video projected by the beamer by taking the beamer out of its pyramid-shaped casing and directing it towards the wall. Honoré δ'O leaves the choice of video to be shown up to M HKA. During the current exhibition, the video shown in Re-casing is called Toon tonen of niet tonen (To show or not to show, 2004), made by the artist himself. The video follows a group of choir singers as they walk through a house, singing Gregorian chants. δ'O made this video on the occasion of a collection presentation at M HKA in 2004, which was focused on works by artist Toon Tersas.
