International festivals focusing on art and media technology.

From 10 through 29 April 2007, the eighth Dutch Electronic Art Festival (DEAF) will take place in Rotterdam. This international festival is organized every two years by V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media. It will be the first event to take place in the fully renovated Las Palmas cultural center in Rotterdam’s Kop van Zuid area. This year’s theme is Interact or Die!

DEAF features an extensive program addressing art, technology, science and society, with a large exhibition of interactive art as a focal point. This year’s festival will devote special attention to China. Visitors will also be able to enjoy concerts, performances, seminars, workshops and a symposium. DEAF07 is the definitive event at which the international ‘creative city’ network comes together.

25 Years of V2_
Organizer V2_, which has developed DEAF into an important international festival for art and media technology, turns 25 years old this year. One of the DEAF07 theme nights will accordingly be devoted to V2_’s anniversary. A part of the festival program will also focus on the network V2_ has built in China and Asia over the past few years. Young artists and exhibition makers from China, along with several key members of the Chinese art world, will play an active role at DEAF.

The Main Location: Las Palmas
DEAF07’s main venue is the Las Palmas cultural center, a renovated building which once housed workshops for the Holland America Line. It is located in the Kop van Zuid area of Rotterdam. DEAF07 is the first festival to take place in the renovated Las Palmas, which will officially be opened on 18 April by a very distinguished guest. DEAF’s other locations include the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, V2_, Ro Theater, Pakhuismeesteren, and Arminius.
