Computer Says No!

V2_Lab calls for Rotterdam based artists, activists, designers and makers to come up with absurd scenarios that expose how unrestricted categorization leads to A.I. – Artificial Inequality. A selection of these ideas will be invited for a mini-residency leading to a Test_Lab presentation.

Who can apply

Anyone who has a good idea can apply, even if you are not able to fully realize it yourself. A connection to Rotterdam is required, but if you are based somewhere else do contact us, perhaps there are ways to team up with someone from Rotterdam with a similar idea.
