LIMA Presents. Non-Linear: Drastically Advanced Regression

Somehow it’s possible, from positions of structural adversity, to manifest pleasure with powerful intent. Struggle can be mobilised in trying to get at both of these things at once. Through the ritualistic, the celebratory and the disobedient, these three works create space for indeterminacy, and unexpected or disallowed forms and practices of resistance which help to destroy the drastically advanced regression that works in and on and through us.

Cultural Matter: Constant Dullaart

Cultural Matter: Annet Dekker on Deli Near .info (Pt.II)

The internet is dominated by controlling and selecting (and censoring) structures and algorithms. Dutch artist Harm van den Dorpel questioned how he as an artist could intervene in these structures, and built a complete up and running digital social network Delinear.info. With this work, van den Dorpel wants to undermine the dominant linear structures which are central to the feeds of mainstream social media. Because the users are able to link any content element (image, website,...
