Introducing: Dirk van de Leemput

I started this week as a PhD candidate in collaboration with Tate Modern on precarity in social-material networks of technology-based artworks. Time based media art is dependent on technologies for its access and display. Museums are not equipped to work with these often obsolete technologies and depend on networks outside the museum to keep their artworks alive. I will study these networks and their impact on conservation strategies.
