Femke Dekker

Professional Practice tutor

Femke Dekker ia a Professional Practice tutor at the BA department of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at the KABK, the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

With her multifaceted practice as a sound practitioner and educator, Femke Dekker has spent more than a decade exploring sound as an agent for making. Known under her artist moniker Loma Doom, her signature style revolves around electronic experimentalism, both for the mind and movement, and seeks to create a space where intuition and understanding can meet.

Actively incorporating styles predating the computer era, she draws from her fondness for freak folk, psychedelic and hardcore punk. This openness led Dekker toward a group of respected deejays in the leftfield underground, and playing at influential spots such as Salon Des Amateurs, Meakusma and Dekmantel, amongst others. Using radio and archives as her main media, her current focus is on various notions of listening and how listening is actually a call to action.

She holds radio residencies at Stranded FM (show: Daydream Nation), Radio Tempo Não Pára (Helter Skelter) and Echobox (Left of the Dial) and at Mutant Radio in Tbilisi, Georgia.

When not behind the decks, Dekker is a contemporary arts educator, teaching as a (guest) tutor at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, Design Academy Eindhoven and KABK, and is an artistic research fellow for the Amsterdam based Visual Methodologies Collective.
