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.

In the mid-1980s Danny Matthys made a long trip to Australia followed by a period of reflection. Many of his early photo mosaics get a definite shape in the following years. Venezia e Cultura originates from this period. Photos, including from Venice and from Matthys' own environment, are integrated into a larger whole. Neon lights above the various photo sets enhance the coherence, while rendering details harder to read. The coherence is further enhanced by covering certain areas with semi-opaque paint or ink, creating cohesive entities.
