Exhibitions Witte de With-kwartier

During TEC ART 2017 a 7m replica of the moon was presented in the Boomgaardsstraat. For the 2018 edition the street will be transformed into a free, futuristic twilight zone. Artist Saygin Soher uses the technology of video-mapping to produce 3D effects on a 200 m2 street wall. Visitors will also enter a 100m long audiovisual doppler effect by Light-artist Michel Suk, well known for his spectacular installations at GLOW Eindhoven.

Symposium with René ten Bos (NL) ‘Denker des vaderlands’

Professor in philosophy René ten Bos will be the keynote speaker of the symposium of TEC ART 2018. The theme ‘FUTURE FLASH 200’ is a reference to a historical date, the year 1818. It was the year Mary Shelley wrote her novel ‘Frankenstein’, about the iconic birth of the infamous cyborg, the prototype of human enhancement. But with ‘FUTURE FLASH 200’, TEC ART especially aims to explore the future. Together with René ten Bos we reflect on the impact of dataism, techno-humanism, wonder if organisms are just algorithms and if life is just a matter of data? And what is more valuable: intelligence or consciousness?

Kunstblock, Tech-party and SPACE BRAINS

TEC ART presents an extensive side-program. In collaboration with Kunstblock – consisting of TENT, Witte de With, Showroom MAMA and CBK Rotterdam – a joint evening is organized. Thursday night there will be a blasting ‘Machine-Music-Techno-Night’. And saturday February 10, space artist Daniela de Paulis and her engineers are present during the afternoon with COGITO.
