M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

In the early years of her career, Marlow Moss observed the rules of the neo-plastic movement to the letter. Yet, she soon went her own way. Although she always remained faithful to a number of aspects (the pure colours, the straight lines), focusing on movement from the beginning, unlike the other artists she surrounded herself with.

It was she, therefore, who introduced the so-called ‘double line’. By drawing a double horizontal line that goes through the centre of the canvas, an expression of motion ensues. It is as if the different parts of the painting are driven apart. Moss always started from a composition that had to meet certain proportions. There are even theories that claim that she calculated the format of certain works with mathematical precision in advance. In any event, before she started to paint, the outcome was always clear.
