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.

Robert Filliou developed the idea for his series of didactic video works during his time in Canada in the late 1970s. He used the medium of film to record these performances, and to circulate them, so they might be seen by a wider – not just art-going public. In these videos, Filliou interacts directly with the viewer, offering half-serious/half-ironical explanations about his works, his activities and his general approach to art. Porta Filliou contains talks and performances that summarize a number of Filliou’s works and puts them into context. In And So On, End So Soon. Done 3 Times, Filliou discusses the application in film of his Principle of Equivalence (in life as in art, ‘well made’, ‘poorly made’ and ‘unmade’, are three equivalent propositions), after which he demonstrates this principle in Telepathic Music No 7 with a performance example. The two videos from the series Teaching and Learning as Performing Arts Part II are a continuation of the artistic presentations that appeared in the 1970 publication Teaching and Learning as Performing Arts. In this book, artists like Joseph Beuys and John Cage present how to apply techniques drawn from performance art to education. In these videos, where topics are organized into chapters, the Robert Filliou on the screen gives orders to the Robert Filliou standing next to the monitor, like master and pupil (or master and slave!).
