V2_ was founded in 1981 and is currently located in the center of
Rotterdam. It has a presentation space, a media lab, a publishing house
and offices. V2_ is an interdisciplinary center for art, technology and
media that pays special attention to research. Thus, it has many
collaborative ties with institutions in various sectors (such as art,
universities and colleges, and the business world). This research
concentrates on the relationship between art, technology, media and
society and is made accessible through public presentations. Over the
past 25 years, a growing domestic and international audience has had the
opportunity at V2_ to get acquainted with prominent artists, thinkers
and projects in the field of art, media and technology through
exhibitions, presentations, symposiums and performances. V2_ currently
employs 24 permanent staff.
