Rotterdam's cybercafés ('belhuizen') have a bad reputation. They are
associated with diverse illegal activities, from money laundering to
support of terrorists. Research conducted by the city shows, however, 
that statistically, only minor nuisances show up as the problems they

In 2010, net artist Olia Lialina researched Rotterdam's cybercafés and
physical and online 'low culture' environments as part of her research
fellowship of the Piet Zwart Institute and artist-in-residence work at
Goethe-Institut Rotterdam. She will present, for the first time, the
results of her research. 

This event is a cooperation of the Research Programme Communication in a
Digital Age and the Networked Media Master orientation of the Piet Zwart
Institute with Goethe-Institut Rotterdam.
