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.
