Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács

Margit Lukács & Persijn Broersen are artists living and working in Amsterdam and Paris. They work in a wide variety of media—most notably video, animation and graphics—producing a myriad of works that reflect on the ornamental characteristics of today’s society. The work of  Broersen and Lukács is characterized by a quest for the sources of contemporary visual culture. With video pieces that incorporate (filmed) footage, digital animation and images appropriated from the media, they demonstrate how reality, (mass) media and fiction are strongly intertwined in contemporary society.

Broersen (1974, Delft) and Lukács (1973, Amsterdam) studied at the Sandberg Institute and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Their newest work Establishing Eden was recently nominated for the IFFR Tiger Awards 2016. Their films, installations and graphic work have been shown internationally, at a.o. Biennale of Sydney (Australia), Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (the Netherlands), MUHKA (Belgium), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Shanghai World Expo, and Casa Enscendida (Madrid). Their films have been shown at several festivals including LAForum (Los Angeles), Kassel Dokumentar und Filmfestival, Paris Rencontres (France, Germany and Spain, the New York Film Festival, International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, and the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
