Jonathan Reus will be presenting a new research project with Joana Chicau at V2’s Test_Lab. This project looks into performative ways of critically engaging with machine learning algorithms, using the anatomical theatre as an inspiration point.
Since 2006, V2_ has been organizing a public program under the name Test_Lab. The target group consists of artists, scientists, technicians, theorists and students carrying out work at the cutting edge of technology, society and art.
Although each edition has a specific theme, Test_Labs have a low entry threshold and are therefore always accessible for a wide audience of interested people. New developments in the field of artistic research and development are demonstrated, tested, presented and discussed at the Test_Labs. The programs offer a broad context for new work and work in development, bringing together specialists from a wide range of scientific and artistic disciplines, young creators, students, and theorists in an informal setting. In each individual Test_Lab program, a different subject is tackled through a constantly changing informal format.
