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.

Jan De Lauré paints to show fragments of the world that might otherwise go unnoticed by the viewer. The work Untitled is a 'fossilised', timeless image. The grand emotions are absent from this painting; it mainly evokes an introverted, melancholic atmosphere. The figures are portrayed isolated from the world, which lend a sinister sensation to his works. As can be seen in this girl, who one would expect to be holding a doll, rather than a baby. The viewers have to provide their own interpretation.
