Test_Lab: Who Wants To Be…? + Blowup: Show Me The Money
December 1+2, 2011, 20:00-23:00
V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

Test_Lab: Who Wants to Be…? is a social experiment in the form of a raucous game show developed by art collective The People Speak. All visitors chip in 10 EUR in advance to enter the game, after which they brainstorm, argue, and vote on how to spend the collective money.
“..a hugely liberating and spontaneous night of audience autonomy.” - The Guardian

The next day we continue with Blowup: Show Me The Money. What price tag do you put on priceless experiences and objects? Join us in a discussion getting to the root of notions of "value" and "culture" with cultural economist Diane Ragsdale, electrical scientist Saul Albert, and artist Christian Nold.

50 Years of Dutch Media Art at STRP
November 18 - 27, 2011

The STRP festival, taking place this year for the fifth time in Philips' old Strijp-S building, is staging an exhibition devoted to half a century of media art in the Netherlands. We're proud of the role V2_ has played in that history since 1982, thanks to the input of countless artists and collectives. With seven installations on show at the popular festival V2_ can call itself an official purveyor of 50 years of media art in the Netherlands.
