V2_Newsletter January 2010

… And a happy New Year! V2_ wishes all of its readers and visitors a
wonderful 2010. We will kick start 2010 with two exhibition openings and
we hope to see you there.


Crisis: a non-economic approach

Exhibition: Jan 7–10 and 14–17, 2010
12:00–18:00 | Admission: free | Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

V2_ presents the Media Technology MSc Exhibition by the students of the
Leiden University. The Media Technology MSc program encourages students
to formulate their own scientific questions and to translate their
personal inspiration and curiosity into their research projects. This
has resulted in six media art installations. The theme of this year’s
semester project exhibition is “crisis.”

Official opening: January 7 at 17:00 by Michel van Dartel



World Skin – Maurice Benayoun

Installation/Exhibition: Jan 22–Feb 7, 2010
Open daily from 13:00–19:00 | Admission €3,- | Eendrachtsstraat 10,

In parallel to the 39th edition of the International Film Festival
Rotterdam, V2_ presents /World Skin: A Photo Safari in the Land of War/,
an installation by the French artist Maurice Benayoun. A visit to /World
Skin/ is a poignant experience. Armed with a camera, visitors are placed
in a war zone that is visualized on a large projection screen in 3D
animation and video.

Opening in the presence of the artist: January 22 at 17:30 by Alex



V2_Online Archive

As another step in the ongoing development of a new approach to online
archiving V2_ has released the extended view option on its regular
website. Visitors who press the arrow symbol next to an item on the
V2_website will now see all related articles, people and organizations,
edited and structured by the archivist rather than by the computer.


We also started presenting our collection of videos from past events and
works at the website. You can find the ever-growing collection at:
