PERFORMING THE LENS: THE CHOREOGRAPHY, ALGORITHMS AND MATERIALITY OF IMAGEMAKING
V2_ will host ‘Performing the Lens’, the 2020 Graduation Show of the Master Media Design of the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
In recent decades, our engagement with the world has become increasingly virtual. This shift has profoundly affected our relationship with and understanding of images. The global pandemic has exacerbated the situation: we now interact with the world almost exclusively through images on screens. In discussions of how the new reality is affecting people’s everyday lives, however, surprisingly little attention is paid to the role of the lens in shaping our new virtualized “being in the world.”
Between March 29 & April 2, the works of the artists will be presented as videos. The videos will be shared through our website & our Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram & Twitter accounts. If you’d like to receive a link to the video’s directly by e-mail, please fill out the following form.
