The exhibition Land Art for a New Generation opens at Showroom MAMA on June 17, 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. More information about the project and current Dead Drop locations is available at www.deaddrops.com.
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.
