Screening I am a tool of gentrification by Lyubov Matyunina

LIMA and TAAK are happy to invite you to the screening of Lyubov Matyunina's I am a tool of gentrification: Noord. In the eight years that she lived in Amsterdam, Matyunina (1985 Kaliningrad, Russia) observed how the city changed from culturally-oriented to market-driven.

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...
