Last night a very strong Test_Lab: The Graduation Edition 2012 took place at V2 in Rotterdam. I was invited to be critical respondent, and my job was to ask the first question, and try to get the artists to tell a bit more about their work, fears and hopes.
The selected artists were Joseph Popper (Royal College of Art, London), Tomas Navarro (Piet Zwart institute, Rotterdam), Marcel van Heist (Eindhoven University of Technology), Shing Tat Chung (Royal College of Art, London), Marcel de Vries (Frank Mohr institute) and Matthijs Munnik (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague).
The artistic ambition and technical aptitude of this new generation of artists was genuinely impressive. Their subjects, more now than now, and referencing BERG, Kevin Slavin and Ryoji Ikeda, ranged from algorithmic finance and the new space race to synthesized weather and volumetric illuminations.
