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 multi-faceted practice as a contemporary arts curator, moderator, (radio) DJ and broadcaster, Femke Dekker has long been an active member of Amsterdam’s cultural scene.

She is part of the editorial team of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, the online radio platform for visual arts and culture and was affiliated as tutor with the Radical Cut Up department of the Sandberg Instituut, the masters program of the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie of Fine Arts and Design.

She curates cultural programmes for festivals such as the annual ‘Lente Kabinet’ in Amsterdam. Her independent practice centers around music culture and contemporary art, bringing together the work of emerging artists working on the crossroads of sound, installation and performance art and music.

As Loma Doom, the moniker for her DJ practice, her signature style revolves around electronic experimentalism, both for mind and movement, seeking the outliers, one that avoids linearity, towards a space where intuition and understanding meet. Actively incorporating styles predating the computer era, she sources from her fondness for freak folk, psychedelic and hardcore punk. This openness veered Femke into a category of respected deejays in the leftfield underground, having played influential spots such as Salon Des Amateurs, Meakusma and Dekmantel, amongst others. She currently holds radio residencies at Stranded FM (show: Daydream Nation), Radio Tempo Não Pára (Helter Skelter) and Echobox (Left of the Dial).
