On December 1, 2011 the participants of the game show Who Wants To
Be ...?, organized by V2_ and The People Speak, decided to spent
their collective money on a plaque bearing their names in memory of
the evening and in celebration of democracy in general. They also
voted for a proposal to solve the problem of V2_’s not very reliable
doorbell. Roel and Micha, students of the Willem de Kooning Academy,
who came up with the winning proposal, spend the recent months
working closely with the best typographers and illustrators.
The search for different materials and techniques led to a
collaboration with the Rotterdam Snijlab. After three months, the
plaque is ready! We will organize a small but festive unveiling
ceremony on Friday, April 13th 2012 at 16:30. The ceremony will take
place on the sidewalk in front of V2_. Have a drink with us this
Friday, the door will be open. In case the doorbell in the future
fails again you can now find the telephone number of V2_ at the
bottom of the new official plaque!
