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.

Do we feel with our brain and think with our heart?, 2013

2013, Parma

Here the artist is in conversation with the Italian professor Giacomo Rizolatti, the scientist who discovered the mirror neurons with which we perceive empathy. Fabre’s famous marble sculptures Pietas are based on this discovery. 


'It is now three in the morning.
This time I can't sleep
because my mirror neurons are still
floating around and dancing with delight.
The whole day, during the film shoot, enjoyed
the open mind and playful performance
by the marvellous Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti.
What lovely people.
The searching and discovering man.'

(Jan Fabre,Parma, 29 November 2012)
