  • Cultural Matter: João Laia in conversation with Amalia Ulman

    Cultural Matter is a series of exhibitions and events that provide a platform for the international discussion of digital art and highlights the enduring expressive power of digital artworks.


    The work of visual artist Amalia Ulman (1989, Argentina) deals with issues of class, gender and sexuality. She uses elements of performance art alongside installations, video, photography and Internet art.

  • Digital Canon?!

    On 22 March, LIMA launched a Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands. Experts from the field of digital culture selected twenty of the most prominent and influential works made on Dutch soil by artists who lived or worked here over a long period of time. The works and their makers are not all equally well known, yet this does not detract from their lasting influence on digital art and culture. Each of the works makes use of or responds to digital culture’s increasing impact on art and society. Discover these exceptional works of art on www.digitalcanon.nl
