M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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 Persiana, we are confronted with the subtle effect that roller blinds (with their thin, parallel slats) have on our vision. 'Persiana' is the Spanish and Italian term applied to these sorts of sunblinds, serving to protect against light and heat.  At the same time they reveal/conceal what plays out within. Another term for this kind of shutter is 'jalousie', evoking associations with suspicion, paranoia and privacy. This work stimulates the viewer to think about the painting as a window on reality, and questions the relationship between that which is shown and that which remains hidden.
