Looking back at 2014 and what happened in early 2015

January, 2015



             (Installation by Simone C. Niquille in the Born Digital exhibition at the MOTI, Breda. Till June 2015)

The 21th of March 2015 I moderated a panel about art after the Internet at the Museum of the Image (MOTI) in Breda. I will also give a brief talk there. All this takes place in the Born Digital exhibition. But my year started with a trip to Brussels on January 28th, where I will speak at a panel organized for the Data Privacy Day, in connection with the Faceless exhibition. More work and publications are being prepared, on which I will post an update later. 

2014 started with the Amsterdam edition of the Faceless exhibition. I moderated a discussion with Zach Blas, Jeremy Bailey and Bogomir Doringer about art, surveillance and anonymity. I wrote an article for Frieze D/E about net art in Berlin in the nineties, and gave a talk about alternative networks in the Hito Steyerl exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. In June I joined the advisory committee for e-culture of the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie. Because we lost the Dutch Media Art institute due to funding cuts I organized special conversation dinner parties at Zone2source (with Karen Lancel and Alice Smits) and LIMA (with Gaby Wijers) in Amsterdam. In between I have tried to focus on my PHD project at the University of Amsterdam.
