Material Art Fair

New Feelings


Opening Times presents New Feelings, a screening curated for the public program of Material Art Fair, Mexico.

​From the 4th to the 7th February the screening program will be showing simultaneously at Material Art Fair and on the Material Art Fair website. The program focuses on the subjects of Capital, Desire and Bodies and concludes with an epilogue that examines all three through music videos and found footage online.

New Feelings looks at affective economies in our networked society, bringing together a series of works from artists including Maja Čule, Heather Phillipson, Jala Wahid and Andrew Norman Wilson. These works bear witness to the evolving process of capital governing desire, desire governing the body and the body becoming capital.

Institutionalising the Digital


In collaboration with the Goethe-Insitut London and Melanie Bühler, Opening Times organised Institutionalising the Digital, a panel discussion and website take-over.

Institutionalising the Digital aimed to highlight a number of recent initiatives to have surfaces that are dedicated to presenting the work of artists in an online environment. Branching off into ‘the digital’, institutions now incorporate digital infrastructures as part of their institutional properties, launching digital residencies and giving away grants to support digital works. The talk focussed on the questions and concerns involved in the presentation, facilitation and support of artistic practices online by institutions that are both ‘digitally native’ as well as organisations that preceded computer technology.

Opening Times was present during the event through a take-over of the Goethe-Institut’s website, interacting live with the discussion.

The panellists include:

The event was moderated by Filipa Ramos, Editor in Chief, art-agenda & Co-curator Vdrome.
