Deep Screen – Art in Digital Culture
Proposal for Municipal Art Acquisitions 2008
Stedelijk Museum CS, Amsterdam (NL)
30.05.08 – 30.09.08
Deep Screen – Art in Digital Culture presents contemporary works of art which are all in some way marked by today’s digital culture. The jury, chaired by guest curator Andreas Broeckmann, has selected 18 artists out of the 200-plus submissions. In the course of the exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum CS, director Gijs van Tuyl will select works to be acquired for the museum’s collection.
The increasing digitalisation of our culture has consequences for the arts. We take instant photos with our cell phones, pick out the shots we want in the blink of an eye on the computer screen, and create our own version of reality using Photoshop and iPhoto. The influence on the visual art world is apparent in the temporary nature of the images used and the centrality of process, repetition and change.
Artists participating in the exhibition:
Mark Bain, Pierre Bastien, Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács, Erwin Driessens & Maria Verstappen, David Jablonowski, JODI, Gabriel Lester, Meiya Lin, Erica van Loon, Luna Maurer, Nathaniel Mellors, Geert Mul, Marnix de Nijs & Edwin van der Heide, Gert-Jan Prins, Remko Scha & Arthur Elsenaar, Roland Schimmel, Jochem van der Spek and Jasmijn Visser
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication of the same title, containing an essay by Andreas Broeckmann. The exhibition is being part-funded by the City of Amsterdam
