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.

A pioneer of conceptual art, David Lamelas used the venue of his first solo exhibition at the seminal Wide White Space in Antwerp in 1969 as a point of departure for the Antwerp series, hiring a professional photographer to shoot three main sites in the city between 9am. and 5pm. Each photograph documents Antwerp’s urban life and is marked with the exact time it was taken. Lamelas is telling the viewer that this place will never exactly be the same again. Things happen. The camera angle, the unspectacular choice of view and the notation of the time all generate the impression of a documentary, whose objectivity is under investigation, but they also reveal how framing and selection disrupt any sense of unity of time and space.
