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.

Literary synopsis

This turbulent & cyclical story follows in the footsteps of Chyldish’s other two faux autobiographical novels My Fault and Notebooks of a Naked Youth. Written in the dyslexic hand of the author Sex Crimes of the Future is steeped in black humor and displays a wicked intelligence, making a read that is as compelling & entertaining as it is challenging.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Sex Crimes of the Futcher is published with no ISBN number, no bar code and no distribution. There is a first edition of 500 hardback copies that come with a screen printed dust jacket. There is also a limited edition of 26 signed & lettered copies with an original woodcut - printed and signed by the author - tipped in on the front end paper.
