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.

Marinus Boezem

° 1934

Born in Leerdam (), lives in Middelburg ().

Marinus Boezem exhibited a stretch of polder as a ready-made in 1960. This is not untypical of his monumental-but-modest œuvre, largely based on gesture and addressing the spiritual through playful interventions in nature. In 1969 he ‘signed’ the sky with the exhaust fumes of an aircraft and appropriated ‘the weather’ by exhibiting meteorological maps from a newspaper. A recurrent theme in Boezem’s work is the Cathedral of Rheims, recreated in various materials (trees, stone slabs, wine glasses). For his Green Cathedral at Almere he planted 174 Italian poplars to form a gradually growing cathedral.
