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.

This series of 25 graphic works from K P Krishnakumar is one of the works purchased by the M HKA in the context of the 2008 exhibition Santhal Family: Positions Around an Indian Sculpture. Drawing was not the main focus of the artistic practice of K P Krishnakumar. Nonetheless, they do tell us much about his approach to art and here, too, we see the themes that so much characterize his sculptures. Krishnakumar reflects on love, life and death. Krishnakumar’s drawings are marked by great expressive power and diagrammatic execution of line. Across the series we see Krishnakumar trying out various styles, sometimes within a single drawing. He applies himself to traditional subjects such as portraiture and scenes from daily life, but also makes quite distorted, near-abstract representations testifying to a great power of imagination and inner turmoil, as well.
