Labs Show DEAF 2012

V2_Lab and Baltan Laboratories (Eindhoven) launch a call for proposals from media labs around the world for recently produced artworks to be featured at the next edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival taking place from April 19-22, 2012 in Rotterdam.

V2_Lab (Rotterdam, NL) and Baltan Laboratories (Eindhoven, NL) launch a call for proposals from media labs around the world for recently produced artworks (developed by artists in labs in 2011-2012) to be featured at the next edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival taking place from April 19-22, 2012 in Rotterdam (NL). The intentions of the show are to provide a unique overview of the diversity and quality of work being developed at the crossroads of art and technology today, to present ‘best practices’ of different labs, and provide input for a conference on new forms of contemporary art production in the form of concrete work and working processes. Through this we aim to stimulate new productions, open up the ‘ways of producing’ of labs and fuel the debate on the socio-cultural functions of artistic research and production facilities.

Call for proposals

Any (self-defined) lab, in collaboration with an artist (or artists), can apply with an artwork that they will produce, to be presented in the show. The final selection will be made on the basis of the quality and feasibility of the proposed project in relation to the aims and context of the exhibition. The envisaged total number of participating labs/artworks in the show is 10.
