V2_ Rotterdam

Pieter van Boheemen (Open Wetlab) is guest at the Test_Lab: Genomic Gastronomy programme at V2_ in Rotterdam on 11th December 2014.

In an evening full of food phreaking and culinary controversy, artistic think-tank The Center for Genomic Gastronomy will discuss the biotechnologies and biodiversity of our food systems. On the basis of a live sneak preview of their work as artists in residence at V2_, and with the help of special guests like Anja Groten and Pieter van Boheemen, visitors will be introduced to the Center’s ambition to uncover and reveal the strange but true stories of our global food system through a series of semi-documentary videos.

In addition to an exclusive look at costumes, set designs, scripts and rough cuts, in the Test_Lab tradition, The Center for Genomic Gastronomy will also demonstrate their research live and invite visitors to do some Smog Tasting, discuss the fact and fiction of the infamous Fish Tomato, dive into the magic ingredients of Cobalt-60 Sauce and taste Doritos4Snowden.

Test_Lab is a public events series organized by V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media that provides an informal setting for the presentation, demonstration, testing and discussion of artistic research and development.
