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.

"Green is both a highly natural and highly artificial color. It seems to signify both organic growth and disintegration. The green color in the orchid painting is taken from a see-through-plastic notebook cover, so the flower is seen through an artificial filter. I've read that it is statistically proven that the semen of men is getting weaker and less fertile and that at the same time some plants' stamens have changed sex in order to survive. I see this flower as feminine." (Luc Tuymans)

Aquisition on behalf of the Flemish Comunity. Orchid is a screenprint based on the well-known painting Orchid from 1998 .Printed by Tubbax, Antwerp under supervision of Roger Vandaele, ed. 80 + 5 AP.
