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.

Anselm Kiefer

° 1945

Born in Donaueschingen (Germany), lives in Croissy-Beaubourg (France).

Anselm Kiefer (1945, Germany, lives in Paris) was a student of Joseph Beuys who became a painter and sculptor and occasionally makes large-scale installations. His work is characterised by broad and dark evocations of an unspecified mythologised past, with images of scenery referring to the Bible, the Third Reich or imaginary Germanic antiquity. In a series of paintings the woods and fields of Germany are entrusted with mystical powers with the help of unorthodox and expressive painting techniques. Kiefer’s Wagnerian ambition came to the surface in 2009, when he produced and decorated an opera entitled 'Am Anfang' (‘In the Beginning’).
