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.

Kleine Caroli, 1963

In the poem Kleine Caroli (1963) the visual aspect of the rhythmic typography does not attempt any formal imitation. The links created between ‘tiflis’, ‘nausica’ and ‘ulyssis’ are not so much elicited by any typographical emphasis but rather by their mutual associations. They relate to Odysseus’ desire for adventure and the deferral of love. ‘Tiflis’, the capital of Georgia in the Caucasus region, symbolises love and the exotic. The main character in the poem, ‘kleine Caroli’, refers to the ‘Ulysses’ in us all, endlessly searching, in this case for the woman Nausica, the female landscape, here surreally expressed as the mountain range that extends from Spain (Cantabria) to the Caucasus, becoming lost in the labyrinth. The essence of this poem is the observation that man still strives for absolute ideals within his own relativity and that of the world around him.
