Technology requested

27 November 2010 - 6 February 2011, Opening November 26, 5 pm — Work by artists who apply new technologies to initiate interaction with their audience will be central to the exhibition Technology Requested. The artworks only come to life when the visitor enters the artwork's physical space. With the exhibition Technology Requested Heiner Holtappels will be saying his farewell as general and artistic director of the Netherlands Media Art Institute. Heiner Holtappels has held that position since1998, and wraps up his work here as of the end of February, 2011. The artists in the exhibition have a special relation with the Netherlands Media Art Institute, with their work having been shown a number of times at the Institute during the past twelve years. Technology Requested shows new installations that were realized in 2010. For example, the performance-installation by Sonia Cillari was created this year as an Artist in Residence project at the NIMk. With Alfredo Ciannameo, Sonia Cillari, Kirsten Geisler, Edwin van der Heide, Marnix de Nijs and Christiaan Zwanikken
