Since the beginning
Works in Limassol Cyprus

NeMe is a non profit, non government, Cyprus registered cultural organisation founded in November 2004. NeMe works on two platforms - a virtual and an itinerant one - and focuses on contemporary theories and their intersection with the arts.

NeMe's itinerant platform, the "IMCA" (Independent Museum of Contemporary Art) presents NeMe projects which include, exhibitions, performances, new media events, symposia and archives. The form of the IMCA is determined as a practice or process by the nature of each project with the notion of the exhibition "space" being constantly revised and redefined.

NeMe resides in two sites:

* provides a service by publishing critical texts and filtered cultural information which includes arts news, calls as well as providing a forum for public discussion. documents of all NeMe off and on line activities.

Thu Oct 01, 2015 18:00 - Thu Dec 31, 2015

Limassol, Cyprus

NeMe and Rialto Theatre invite you to the opening of the exhibition IDIOSYNCRASIES.CY at the Rialto Theatre, Limassol, Cyprus at 6pm, October 1st, 2015.

IDIOSYNCRASIES.CY investigates a selection of distinctive features, thoughts, oddities or modes of behaviour that we all have assumed are particular to Cyprus and its social landscape. These local, so called truisms, are often humorous confessions of the unconventional. However, in many cases, these commonplace phrases have become enmeshed in our social fabric revealing apathy, prejudice and stereotypic racism, intolerance of difference and discrimination, self censorship and the willingness to passively accept many forms of injustice, such as corruption, repression and cruelty.

Participants: Natalie Demetriou, Maria Lianou & Alexandros Christophinis, Evripides Zantides, Stelios Tzivas, Costas Sofocleous & Nefeli Christodoulou, Elina Theodotou, Dia.gnosis, twenty three.

Curator: Natalie Kynigopoulou

Limassol, Cyprus

On 13 June at 7.30pm, NeMe invites you to the Launch of New Threads Project at the NeMe Arts Centre. New Threads is initiated by NeMe as a platform to invite young and emerging Cypriot cultural practitioners to curate low budget events. THis first event is curated by Natalie Kynigopoulou.

The rewriting of the past is dynamic, orientated towards the future. Its role is to endow the present with meaning by offering a focus of desire to a community with reason to doubt its future. (Jules Régis Debray, God: An Itinerary)

Regis Debray theorises his concept of Mediology as a practice which strives to analyse the transmission of cultural meaning in society by operating to make the present meaningful and identifiable through the intersections between the medium through which it travels and the intellect. This requires that a closer investigation is made of its material dimensions bringing to surface its diachronic and/or political impetus.(Jules Régis Debray, Transmitting Culture)


It's the Political Economy, Stupid

Mon Nov 10, 2014 17:00 - Sat Dec 06, 2014

Limassol, Cyprus

NeMe and the Art History and Theory Research Lab (Cyprus University of Technology) present:
It's the Political Economy, Stupid
an international exhibition and a pre-opening seminar.

With the collapse of the international markets in 2008 and the subsequent bail-outs of financial institutions in many countries including Cyprus, came the unprecedented criticism of governmental collusion with financial imperialism. This criticism has most recently given us waves of protest and resistance worldwide, at a time when the deterritorialised flow of finance capital is melting down all that was once solid, into raw material for market speculation. The exhibition represents a significant response to this crisis. It derives its title from US presidential candidate Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign statement, It's the economy, stupid, modified to It's the political economy, stupid, by philosopher Slavoj Zizek.


Curators: Oliver Ressler and Gregory Sholette.
Participating artists: Filippo Berta, Christopher Christou, Noel Douglas, Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson, Paolo Cirio, Yevgeniy Fiks / Olga Kopenkina / Alexandra Lerman, Field Work, flo6×8, Melanie Gilligan, Institute for Wishful Thinking, Jan Peter Hammer, Alicia Herrero, Sherry Millner & Ernie Larsen, Suzana Phialas, Zanny Begg & Oliver Ressler, Isa Rosenberger, Dread Scott, Marios Theophilides, Pavlos Vrionides.

Metadesigning for the Future - Gene Youngblood's conversation with Erkki Huhtamo

We have the great pleasure to inform you that NeMe has published a conversation by Erkki Huhtamo with Gene Youngblood. This text and the images which illustrate it have never been published before.

Huhtamo's systematic approach of understanding new media by looking back into history and Youngblood's visionary insights remain a highly germane and valuable contribution to contemporary discussion of this field.

Twenty-three years have passed since the initial interview between Huhtamo and Youngblood which makes this conversation a historical document but more importantly, and as Youngblood mentions in his Preface, it remains 'a call for the revolution.'

The text is dedicated to the memory of Sherrie Rabinowitz (1950-2013)
