11 September 2024 19:30 - 21:30
LI-MA, Arie Biemondstraat 111, 1054 PD Amsterdam

For the upcoming edition of LI-MA Presents, videomaker and visual artist belit sağ will show a selection of works from the LI-MA collection in dialogue with other works. The evening will be moderated by Sanneke Huisman. Stay tuned for more information and names! Tickets will be available soon.

Throughout the year, LI-MA presents programmes of media and video art from its own collection and with guest curators – all at LAB111, where LI-MA is located. The programmes compiled by a guest curator usually focus on a specific theme. For the upcoming edition, artist belit sağ delves into LI-MA's collection and puts together their personal programme. As a filmmaker and artist, sağ reflects on how (media) images affect us personally and socially, as well as on how archives organize and represent histories. sağ will bring together a screening programme, Remembering Otherwise, where filmmakers and artists work with the excess and the unarchivable memories. In the selected films, smell, touch, gossip, sonic resonances, tactility, and nonlinear timelines are foregrounded as relevant ways to connect with the historical. As part of the selection programme, she will show their work-in-progress short film with the same name as the programme, Remembering Otherwise.
