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.

Since 1989, the year the Berlin Wall fell and the year of the *Magiciens de la terre* exhibition at Beaubourg, the hegemony of Western art has declined and other cultural regions and traditions have come into view. In most cases this was accompanied by radical social and cultural changes. The M HKA has undertaken to chart the contemporary art from these other cultural regions. This explains why recent acquisitions have included work by artists from Egypt, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Iraq, India and China. In this way the museum is steadily building up a global collection. The basis for this presentation is the literary event Mind the Book. This ‘international festival for the mind’ stimulates a meeting of minds between writers and readers. It challenges other artistic disciplines to come up with points of view, opinions and confrontations. This is a challenge that the M HKA is only too happy to take up. Jef Lambrecht, a journalist who for years reported from the Middle East and who was one of the initiators of Mind the Book, invited Belgian artist friends to take part in an exhibition in which they enter into confrontation with ‘the East’. Each artist presents their very personal reflection on the subject. The presentation of works from the collection joins in with works by artists associated in the broadest possible sense with the East. In collaboration with deSingel, international Arts Campus, Antwerp and Vooruit Arts Centre, Ghent
