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.

Rhein Water Poluted (sic), 1981

Object, 28 x ⌀ 7.5 cm.

Collection: Collectie M HKA, Antwerpen / Collectie Vlaamse Gemeenschap (Inv. no. BK009540).

An artist from Latin America, Uriburu was always sensitive to the exploitation of natural resources in underdeveloped countries for the sake of favourable economic relations with rich countries. With his "colourings" he wants to open people's eyes, he uses mass meetings of the art world for visibility and does not shy away from collaborating with environmental organisations such as Greenpeace or with the first "Green" political parties. In 1981, he coloured the waters of the Rhine with Joseph Beuys. The action was part of a national day of protest against pollution, organised by the Green Party. The following year, Beuys invited the artist to join him in planting 7,000 oaks in Kassel on the occasion of Documenta 7.
