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.

Piero Manzoni

1933 - 1963

Born in Milano ().

[Piero Manzoni](http://www.pieromanzoni.org) (1933–1963, Italy) was a precocious painter and writer of manifestos, notably Per una pittura organica (‘Towards Organic Painting’) in 1957. Inspired by Klein and Fontana, Manzoni produces his first achrome (colourless painting) in 1957, underlining the purity of the material. From around 1960, when he exhibited with the Zero Group, his work focuses on the intellectual rather than the material. Manzoni produces certificates of authenticity declaring a person an authentic artwork, the artist’s breath caught in a balloon and his most legendary work, Merda d’artista (‘Artist’s Shit’): small metal cans containing 30 grams of his own excrement.
