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.

Günther Uecker

©image: Lothar Wolleh

° 1930

Born in Wendorf ().

On his participation-sheet for Vision in Motion, Uecker calls his works ‘Objecte’. The monochrome white and yellow canvases on panel, and a wooden ball as well, are all provided with rows of nails that produce waves through the play of light and shadow. Their changeable character invites the viewer to alter his/her standpoint too. The contrast between the rough finishing and the optical effects lends his early work an unmistakable charm.
