<nettime> Vacancy: parttime curator at V2_

Vacancy: parttime curator at V2_
V2_ was founded in 1981 and is located in the center of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. V2_ runs a presentation space, a media lab, a publishing house and is actively developing an archive related to our almost 30 years of activities. V2_ is an interdisciplinary center for art, technology and media that pays special attention to research and experimentation. Thus, it has many collaborative ties with organisations in various sectors (a.o. the arts, universities, and the social and cultural sector). This research concentrates on the relationship between art and life, technology, media and society. Beside being a place for experts and researchers, we develop public events to make our research, which is practice and theory, accessible for a larger audience. Over the past 30 years, a growing domestic and international audience has had the opportunity to get acquainted with prominent artists, thinkers and projects in the field of art, media and technology through exhibitions, present
 ations, symposiums and performances and the Dutch Electronic Art Festival - DEAF. V2_ currently employs a permanent staff of 22 people from different backgrounds and nationalities.
Partime curator
The position is focused on the development of V2_'s presentations, exhibitions, conferences and other activities. We are looking for a curator that has a profound interest and knowledge in combining practice and theory. The successful applicant will have all necessary knowledge and experience in the field of interdisciplinary and contemporary art in the context of its technological culture,  and to maintain an international network of contacts in this area. Experience in organising interdisciplinary exhibitions, workshops and conferences is a must. In light of the international character of the position, the curator must speak different languages (English at a minimum) and preferably also Dutch. Because the position concerns interdisciplinary activities, the successful applicant should be well-informed in multiple fields. General knowledge in media theory is important.
We require:
> An inventive and creative person with a broad vision in the area of
contemporary art, technology, science and society, who is able to articulate and translate concepts into public presentations as well as into research activities.
> Experience in the conceptualization and realization of exhibitions,
conferences and hands-on presentations.
> Outstanding communication skills and be a team worker.
The curator will work in a small team that is responsible for researching and developing the public events at V2_ and play an important role in developing a public discours in the context of our activities.
