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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK5244).

A key feature of Lohaus’ work is his choice of materials. He is particularly fond of rough wooden blocks. The well-thought-out composition Ohne Titel is an arrangement of six wooden beams in a space. The title leads us to believe that this artwork will take up a lot of space, but nothing could be further from the truth: the image is limited both in terms of its dimensions and in terms of the space it takes up. Thus, Lohaus relativises the meaning of a title or a word, and at the same time breaks away from the viewer’s fixed expectations. Just like Lohaus’ other works, this image is a tribute to intangibility, transience and uncertainty.
