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...

LIMA summer break

While summer is in full swing in Amsterdam, we find ourselves reaming of soft sea breezes and rippling waves moving back and forth over the sand, just like in the Stansfield / Hooykaas video Flying Time (Beach) from 1982. LIMA will have a short summer break from Monday the 30th of July until August 19. During this period the office will be closed. 

LIMA wishes you a wonderful summer!

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.

LIMA Presents. Mind the Gap

Is the filmic space a place of isolation or contact? Loneliness or communication? In the 70s, art historian Rosalind E. Krauss famously argued that the medium of video art is characterised by an ‘aesthetic of narcissism’, a psychological situation where one “withdraws...
