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.

Groot Kwadrantenreliëf, 1964

Collection: Collection VAM, Eindhoven (Inv. no. 430).

'Groot kwadratenreliëf' is made of papier-mâché and consists of hundreds of small squares, which – because they are hand-made – are all different from each other. The light that falls on them emphasizes the irregularities in the rigid composition.

Schoonhoven chooses to express his ideas through geometrical forms, which are then repeated. In this way, structures emerge where no single element stands out; avoiding preference is for the artist, in fact, of extremely importance.
