Master class with Aram Bartholl
Wednesday 29 June, 10:00 A.M. - 04:00 P.M.
V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10 Rotterdam
The exhibition Land Art for a New Generation opens at Showroom MAMA on 17 June 2011. In relation to this show artist Aram Bartholl will lead the Dead Drops master class in Rotterdam on June 29 organized by MAMA and V2_.
Dead drops were spots where Cold War spies left information behind for others to pick up. In 2010, Aram Bartholl started his Dead Drops project, for which he installed USB memory sticks in public locations. Everyone is welcome to upload or download information, creating an anonymous, offline, peer-to-peer network for the exchange of files.

Aram Bartholl (b. Bremen, 1972) studied architecture at Berlin University of the Arts, graduating in 2001 with the final project Bits on Location. His interests include the debates around copyright and developments on the Internet. For several years, he's been collecting impressions related to topics including street art and privacy on his blog. His art concerns the relationship between the digital and the physical and investigates the degree to which the digital is woven into our everyday lives. He is an online artist-in-residence for MAMA's exhibition Land Art for a New Generation. See

Master class
Aram Bartholl will begin the master class with a presentation about his project. Participants will then have an opportunity for discussion. They will subsequently divide into small groups, begin making their own Dead Drops, and give brief presentations about them. The Dead Drops will then be installed in walls in Rotterdam.

Everyone is welcome to take part in the 29 June workshop, taking place at V2_, up to a maximum of 20 participants. The fee is €10. To sign up, email Susan Callaars with your name, address, email address and telephone number.
