This autumn V2_ has initiated a fellowship program. The idea is that we start long-term relationships with artists, curators, designers, technicians and academics for the development of new research themes. The first two Fellows with whom we have started to collaborate are curator Sarah Cook and sociologist Sebastian Olma. At the invitation of V2_ Cook and Olma are investigating the mechanisms that underlie cloud working or the so-called 'gig economy'. Over the coming months this research will result in a number of different programs and publications under the out-sourced title, The Gig is Up.
