TEC ART opens with an evening of fantastic speakers and presentations on the theme of future predictions. Artist Floris Kaayk talks about the latest developments in his Next Space Rebels project. We hear how the future is made from Maya van Leemput, Senior Researcher in Futures Research at the Erasmus University of Applied Sciences in Brussels. Planet Art director Kees de Groot introduces us to the Museum of The Future, which is not only located in Dubai but also in Enschede. And last but not least, Koert van Mensvoort will give us a sneak preview of the amazing New Evoluon, a look into how the future could be, that will take shape in a completely renovated Evoluon in Eindhoven. An evening not to be missed!

TEC ART brings big names from the art world to Rotterdam and at the same time has an important function as a launch pad for up-and-coming talent; the best of the graduates of creative tec schools throughout the Netherlands make their appearance. The exhibition is complemented by a scientific symposium on Wednesday 18 May and a club night programme on Friday 20 May, in cooperation with Double Cross.
