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.

Koka Ramishvili uses various media and topics to react to the changes in values he observes. Post-Soviet Georgia doesn’t escape Ramishvili's continuous visual analysis. Change, the black and white video from 2005, is one of Ramishvili's most important works. Change was shown at the 2009 Venice Biennial.

The work shows slowed down documentary images of a coup in the Georgian parliament. This 'male ballet' flows into scenes from R.W. Fassbinder’s film Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss (The Desire of Veronika Voss). The work shows an ironic contradiction between the male choreography of the coup  – the struggle for power plays an important role here – and Fassbinder's feminine, melodramatic scene of declining vitality and death.
