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.

Michelangelo Pistoletto

° 1933

Born in Biella (IT), lives in Biella (IT).

Michelangelo Pistoletto is associated with Arte Povera. In the 1960s, he defines a new kind of monumentality by combining rags and 'worthless' materials with forms from classical antiquity. From 1962 on, he starts using mirrors and gold, silver or copper as a reflective background for cut-out photographs of life-size human figures. These superpositions fuse past and present  into a single image, putting the very idea of representation to the test, whereas the division and multiplication of reflections express Pistoletto's vision on the continued development of the universe as a reflective process. In recent years, the mirrors are often shown without the extra layer of figuration, and sometimes they are intentionally broken. Pistoletto has created an oeuvre that is well known for its formal complexity, as well as for its social ambition.
