Cultural Matter: Willem van Weelden on UBERMORGEN (Pt. II)
Willem van Weelden has a background in social philosophy and visual art. From 1990 onwards, he specialised in new media - and has published on this topic in various magazines and catalogues.
UBERMORGEN is a well-known artist duo working in the field of digital art. The work is a pastiche of software-based art, conceptual art, photography and installation. With both dark humour and activism, the duo reveals the inside and downside of a post-truth society. At LIMA, the work Chinese Gold is researched, exhibited and discussed. Investigating the phenomenon of Gold mining within World of Warcraft, Chinese Gold revolves around a partly fictive research into the socio-economic impact of virtual currencies.
In a series of presentations, screening and talks LIMA provides a platform for the international discussion of digital art and aims to develop new strategies for the presentation and preservation of these artworks.
