Test_Lab: The Invisible City :: July 8, 2010; 8:00 - 11:00 pm :: V_2, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam + and streamed live.
Artists, architects, and designers play an important role in revealing “invisible” aspects of cities, often providing new insights into how our cities function and develop. To rethink the “invisible city” under the pressure of rapid urbanization, this edition of Test_Lab will feature a selection of freshly graduated artists, architects, and designers from European art and design academies whose projects explore the invisible aspects of our contemporary urban environments. The selected projects range from artistic representations of invisible cities, to simulations of urban economy and concrete scenarios for urban production and energy development. As it is custom to the Test_Lab event series, the audience will form the critical test panel for the demonstrated works and will be invited to examine each graduation project ‘hands-on’.
