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.

Ensemble: Space of World Making

Space of World Making (with a reflection by Taras Kachka)

Any meaningful relation to the world today is ineluctably multi-faceted. In his reflection on the Soviet heritage, Danylo Galkin points out how for Ukraine this relation, beginning in a historical awareness of self, has resemblances to the decolonialist discourse of the Global South. The desire to create cultural localisation today must be negotiated in terms of the global relational of materials, exchanges and ideas.
