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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. B 1997/635).

In 1998 Jef Geys publishes a volume with the prosaic, self-explanatory title - All the black-and-white photographs up to 1998: a weighty tome of some 500 pages, filled with contact prints of all the photographs made by the artist over the last forty years.  This important book offers a panoramic survey of the artist as remorseless observer and chronicler of his (own) history.

In 2002, Jef Geys was one of four Belgian artists chosen for Documenta 11 curated by Okwui Enwezor.  There he presented his piece Dag en Nacht en Dag en… / Day and Night and Day and…, a 36-hour film in black-and-white wherein an endless series of photographs made by the artist from All the black-and-white photographs up to 1998 are edited together, and yield a hypnotically slow procession.  Jef Geys is one of Belgium's most radical and influential artists.  For decades now, his work has enjoyed international attention.
