In 2017 BOZAR LAB issued an open call for innovative companies, start-ups, artists and researchers to reflect on how new technologies and applications could add to the experience of the exhibition Theodoor van Loon.
The proposals from Dries Depoorter and Yiannis Kranidiotis were finally selected from among more than 30 international submissions. The media art of Depoorter is concerned with privacy, the Internet, online identity and surveillance, and has already been exhibited at the Barbican Art Gallery (London), the Mutek Festival (Mexico), Ars Electronica (Austria) and the Athens Digital Art Festival (Greece). Media artist Yiannis Kranidiotis explores the borders between science and art, creating spaces and experiences in which sound and light interplay. His work has already been presented at the NY Media Center (New York), the FILE (Sao Paulo, Brazil), the B-Seite Festival (Germany), ISEA (2016 Hong Kong, 2015 Vancouver) and the LUNDA Gallery (St. Petersburg, Russia). Each of them is now working on a new creation that will be presented during the exhibition Theodoor van Loon, a Caravaggist painter between Rome and Brussels (10.10.18-13.01.19).
