  • The first LIMA production: 'For Preview Only' by Jonas Lund

    The LIMA collection is an amalgamation of a selection of media artworks and installations from the late sixties up to the present day. After years of selecting existing works, LIMA now for the first time asked an artist to create a new work of art based on this rich historical collection. LIMA is thrilled to announce that Jonas Lund was the first to accept the challenge. 

Distribution

LIMA manages an extensive collection of media art that we would like to make available to a large audience. Works on video, installations and websites are being seen at exhibitions and festivals thanks to our active distribution of the collection.

Preservation

The storage, archiving and preservation of media art present some challenges that require a medium specific approach. LIMA is among the global pioneers in the field. We are committed to the preservation of media art and are constantly updating transitioning towards the most current techniques and technologies.

Preservation: Storage

Does your institution house a collection of digital or analogue works of media art? LIMA can preserve and sustain these works. Our conservation specialists store your born-digital material and ensure it can be exhibited now and in the future.

Research

Media art struggles to stay ahead of obsolescence. Every day some bits of knowledge disappear and equipment and formats become obsolete. LIMA is continuously investigating new methods for the preservation and distribution of media art. In doing so, LIMA fulfills a key role in the field on both a national and international level.

About LIMA

Founded by experts from the former NIMk, LIMA is the international platform for sustainable access to media art. With knowledge and passion for both art and technology, these experts are insuring that video, digital and performance artworks can and will be presented now and in the future. Through (online) distribution of our own collection, we keep abreast of technical issues and advances. With our storage and digitisation services we are additionally able to provide support to museums, galleries and individual artists.
