On the occasion of the latest book publication by V2_Publishing, "aRt&D: Research and Development in Art," V2_ presents a discussion and live cinema performance on Saturday 4 June. "aRt&D" discusses how the art practice changed over the last few decades as a result of media and technology influences, and introduces the diversity of this new art domain to a broader audience.

Cultural theorist Sally Jane Norman will moderate an informal, yet critical debate between art historian Marga Bijvoet, media theorist Andy Cameron and media artists Marnix de Nijs and Christa Sommerer. The debate is punctuated and wrapped up with the live cinema performance Rotor by the Belgian multimedia artists Boris and Brecht Debackere.

Sally Jane Norman is a cultural theorist and practitioner whose research is focused on live art and technology. She is director of Culture Lab, an interdisciplinary research facility at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Marga Bijvoet, art historian and yoga teacher, is the author of Art as Enquiry: Toward New Collaborations between Art, Science and Technology (1997), in which she presents an alternative approach to the history of art and technology since the mid-sixties.

Andy Cameron, media theorist, is a founding member of the Hypermedia Research Centre at the University of Westminster in London and co-founded the arts collective Antirom. Currently he is creative director at Fabrica, the Benetton research centre near Treviso, Italy.

Marnix de Nijs is a Rotterdam-based artist who explores the dynamic clash between bodies, machines and other media. He has collaborated with V2_Lab in conceiving his installation Run Motherfucker Run.

Christa Sommerer is an internationally renowned media artist who works in the field of interactive computer installations. She is researcher and artistic director at ATR MI&C Research Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan.

Brecht Debackere is an audiovisual artist who presented his work at several events, including De Kunstvlaai and Stedelijk Museum CS, while multimedia artist Boris Debackere specializes in sound, interface and software design for live music performances. For the book launch celebration they perform an avant-premiere of their live cinema piece Rotor, produced at the WORM filmwerkplaats (Rotterdam).
