Exhibition Lyubov Matyunina - I am a tool of gentrification

24/05/2019 to 21/07/2019
Calendar item

I am a tool of gentrification is an experimental documentary series by Lyobov Matyunina in which she aims to explore complex shifts in the gentrification process of Amsterdam. What is the role of the artist in this process? How we can make use of the current situation and turn it into a positive development for the arts and artists?

The project aims to function as a series of speculative propositions on the subject of how to make gentrification work for Amsterdam-based artists and art, which will primarily open up through interviews and discussions. The films include artistic performances, carpets and masks as a representation of my personal feelings about the gentrification process and as a metaphor for this situation.

I am a tool of gentrification consists of three parts: Amsterdam-Noord, -Centrum and -West. All editions are on view from 24 May to 30 June at LIMA & LAB111, Arie Biemondstraat 111.
