*DEAF07 Celebrates 25 Years of V2_

*Dutch Electronic Art Festival, April 2007
DEAF07 opening: Tuesday April 10, 7:00 p.m., Las Palmas, Rotterdam*

The Dutch Electronic Art Festival (DEAF07) takes place April 10 through 29, 2007, in Rotterdam. One of the most important international art and media technology festivals, DEAF is organized every two years by V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media. V2_ turns 25 this year and will celebrate its anniversary during DEAF07 with a smashing night of music and performances at Staal in Rotterdam on Saturday, April 14.

*25 Years of V2_*
Over the past quarter century, V2_ has evolved into an international organization that brings together artists, scientists, media activists and hackers for research and experimentation. DEAF07 will showcase a number of media (technology) and art highlights; a large exhibition of interactive art will act as the festivalâs focal point. Part of the program will be devoted to the network of contacts in China and the rest of Asia which V2_ has built in recent years. Young Chinese artists, curators and other key art-world players will play an active part in the festival. Alongside V2_âs anniversary, DEAF07 will offer an extensive program of concerts, performances, seminars, workshops and a symposium.
Mouse on Mars and Ryoji Ikeda*
On 14 April V2_ celebrates its 25th birthday with an exceptionally dynamic night. A surprising lineup of groundbreaking artists who have bridged new media, performance, image and sound in the past 25 years will perform. Along with Staalplaat Soundsystemâs âvinyl killersâ, Edwin van der Heideâs laser performances and appearances by Maurice Benayoun and Jean-Baptiste BarriÃre, V2_ will bring you Germanyâs Mouse on Mars and Ryoji Ikeda, Japanâs best-known composer of electronic music.

DEAF07âs exhibition will be held at the new cultural center Las Palmas/LPII and at Pakhuismeesteren, both in Rotterdamâs Kop van Zuid. Other DEAF locations include V2_, the NAi, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, the ro theater, Staal and Arminius.
