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.

Directe actie 1. Banken, 1979


“We also did street 'actions'. We called them 'direct actions'. While many performance artists indeed functioned within the circuit of the art world proper, we consciously chose not to have anything to do with that scene. For our first action, we dressed as civil servants, complete with the 'correct' haircut and briefcase. At five-minute intervals, one of us would leave from the Keizerstraat and walk to the Meir, the street where all the big banks were. I was the first to depart and took up my place at the bank's entrance at the Boerentoren, where I then proceeded to beg. The three others did the same. It didn't even take a half-hour before somebody called the cops and we were just hauled off. There's a little super-8 film recording this." – Narcisse Tordoir
