LIMA is an international expertise centre in the field of archiving and distributing digital art. The organization operates at the intersection of visual art, film and digital culture. LIMA's programme for 2019–2020 consists of three programmatic thrusts. Firstly, LIMA is continuing its 'Unfold' programme, which focuses on reinterpretation and notation as an artistic experiment and will result in a series of workshops. Within the programme 'research and development', LIMA places the emphasis on technically innovative research into dynamic archiving, emulation and documentation, as well as digital repositories. Lastly, LIMA strives to showcase and reflect on digital art, in the guise of the discursive 'Cultural Matter' presentation programme. LIMA is concluding its 2019–2020 programme with a two-day festival. Partners are called on according to the nature of the project. For UNFOLD, LIMA is collaborating with Jan Robert Leegte, IMA and Ars Electronica (Austria), SUPSI (Switzerland) and UBU (Croatia), while for the workshops LIMA is teaming up with Creative Coding Utrecht, iMAL and BrusselDynamisch. Archiving, emulation and documentation will be carried out in collaboration with Rhizome and media artists, including Aymeric Mansoux, Marlous van der Valk, Dave Griffiths, Constant Dullaart and Harm van den Dorpel. Lima also collaborates closely with CoP, HeK (Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel), the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, DEN and universities. For new technologies and models for knowledge transfer, LIMA operates in conjunction with the public, museums and Wikipedia.
