On March 21 2019 I was in Amsterdam to present my performances ‘I follow Yoko and Yoko Follows Me’ 2012 and ‘Audience / Performer / Lens (After Dan Graham)’ 2018 at Transformation Digital Art conference at LIMA Amsterdam. As it was a meeting of media archivists, museum workers, cultural shephards and technologists I spoke specifically around the idea of reinterpretation of historical performance art as a form of preservation, oral history and unrequited commentary. Alongside panelists Anne Marie Duguet (University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), Adam Lockhart (University of Dundee) with moderation provided by Serena Cangiano (University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland).

Within the framework of the exhibition “Liquid Cooled: new works by Emile Zile”, LIMA organises a public screening and discussion night. The artist Emile Zile and art historian and critic Sven Lütticken will talk about Zile’s work within the context of the LIMA Collection – ranging from early gems from the seventies (Douglas Davis, Dan Graham) to Zile’s current body of work. Performance on television, social media and the performativity of the mass media will be recurrent themes.
This programme is part of the exhibition Liquid Cooled: new works by Emile Zile

How are digital media, endless storage space and new ways of communicating shaping the way we capture, share and retrieve our personal memories? The things we want to remember, do they still fit in a shoebox or are they floating around somewhere in ‘the cloud’ amongst the thousands of e-mails and images that our external memory can contain nowadays?
