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.

Dan Flavin

1933 - 1996

Born in New York (), died in New York (), based in Moscow (RU), born in Moscow (RU).

Dan Flavin is a fundamental figure of Minimal Art, famous for constellations of standard-issue neon lamps, usually Untitled (but dedicated in brackets to artists, critics or friends). Opulent and deliberately transitory, his light pieces are now expensive commodities whose owners struggle to prolong the lifespan of obsolete strips or bulbs. Flavin said: ‘These “monuments” only survive as long as the light system is useful, 2100 hours.’ The exhibited corner piece subtly subverts our understanding of light, space and how they affect each other, making a ‘new space’ emerge and emphasising how a predictable method can yield unpredictable results.
