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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0540).

During the ten days of the 6th Moscow biennial (2015),  which took place at the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy (VDNKh) Central Pavilion, Alevtina Kakhidze hosted her  TV show All Times News. The artist daily broadcasted three programs. At noon, Kakhidze hosted the Future News — an optimistic vision of the coming times. In the afternoon, there was the Present News, focusing on events happening at that moment in VDNKh. The Past News in the evening was based on a text about Strawberry Andreevna, who lived in Zhdanivka, a small town to the northeast of Donetsk. The story of Strawberry Andreevna was based on the life of the artist’s mother, who stayed in Eastern Ukraine, a territory that had seen some of the heaviest fighting during Ukraine’s 2014 war with Russia. She died in 2019, presumably of a heart attack, when trying to reach Kiev-controlled territory in order to ‘check in’ and receive her pension.
