We are delighted to team up with the new filmclub Canal++ and ReCNTR (Leiden University) for the screening of Constant by Beny Wagner and Sasha Litvintseva next to works from the LIMA collection! 

The selected screenings will reflect on the theme of (the standardisation of) measurement.

The screenings will be followed by a Q&A with the artists. The evening will conclude with the opportunity to catch up at LAB111’s cafe in attendance of the curators and the artists. 

About Constant (2022) by Sasha Litvintseva and Beny Wagner, 2
Constant, (2022) is a journey through the social and political histories of measurement. For most of recorded history, the human body was the measure of all things. Constant asks: what led measurement to depart from the body and become a science unto itself?” The film explores three shifts in the history of measurement standardisation, from the land surveying that drove Early Modern European land privatisation, to the French Revolution that drove the Metric Revolution, to the conceptual dematerialisation of measurement in the contemporary era of Big Science. 

Selected works from the LIMA collection: 
The Vasulkas, Telc, 1974
Broersen & Lukács, Forest on Location, 2019
Stephen s' Soreff, The Flying Eye, 1981
SERVAAS, 4 Poems, 1982
