Cultural Matter presents: Juha van Ingen
Juha van Ingen’s As Long As Possible (2017) is a GIF animation consisting of a vast series of numbered black screens that will unfold over a period of 1000 years at approximately one per ten minutes.

Cultural Matter: Petra Cortright in conversation with Melanie Bühler (Pt.II)

Petra Cortright’s online artwork VVEBCAM is the work in focus for the last exhibition of LIMA’s Cultural Matter programme. VVEBCAM came out in 2007 marking the beginning of the massive online culture of selfies and influencers. The artist is seen looking at the screen absently clicking through banks of standard effects, which frame her face. The work has an eerie introversion, when looking back from the position of the massive abundance of self-presentation the net has to offer now. The...

LIMA summer break

While summer is in full swing in Amsterdam, we find ourselves reaming of soft sea breezes and rippling waves moving back and forth over the sand, just like in the Stansfield / Hooykaas video Flying Time (Beach) from 1982. LIMA will have a short summer break from Monday the 30th of July until August 19. During this period the office will be closed. 

LIMA wishes you a wonderful summer!
