16:00  Into the Deep, a performance by Fako Berkers.

Through the windows of Roodkapje you can watch a performance in the busy streets of Rotterdam. The work plays with the increasingly blurred boundaries between the actual and the virtual.
16:30  Artist's talk by Rod Dickinson:

Rod Dickinson is a visual artist and lecturer in media and cultural studies at University of West England in Bristol, his art work explores ideas of control and mediation and focuses on the way in which our behaviour is moderated by feedback systems. Using detailed research into moments of the past and present, he has made a series of meticulously re-enacted events that represent various mechanisms of social control.

Dickinson's work, The Milgram Re-enactment (a project done in collaboration with Steve Rushton and Graeme Edler) is featured in Inke Arns' book, History Will Repeat Itself: Strategies of Re-enactment in contemporary (media) art and performance

If you want to know more abut the The Milgram Re-enactmemt, see: http://www.roddickinson.net/pages/milgram/project-synopsis.php
