Anne Pöhlmann and Diango Hernández lonelyfingers Sunday conversations programme at Museum Abteiberg

lonelyfingers founders Anne Pöhlmann and Diango Hernández open a conversation about the reasons why they decided to create an online platform for artists. For this third Sunday conversation Pöhlmann and Hernández tell us the story behind lonelyfingers and its future plans and ideas.

‘lonelyfingers functions as an ubiquitous door that gives us access to particular areas of the artistic process. In this sense lonelyfingers operates as a remote space/container of ideas that can be seen and accessed at anytime from everywhere. In a reality under the influence of the non-stop developing of hundreds of social networks the idea of sharing artistic content needs new formats, updates, upgrades and most importantly needs new ‘devices’. The actual state of the ‘physical space for art’ is too isolated and in that sense lacks complexity, engagement and ultimately it is still under the control of the modernist conception of value and representation’.
