Perpetual Beta [encounters in open space] – Opening Event

Fri 4 June

Perpetual Beta is a physical and virtual exhibition. From June 4th to July 4th, design studios Moniker and RNDR and occasional duo Carolien Teunisse and Sabrina Verhage will work on projects that investigate an alternative to our physical world. The audience is invited to take a look, and contribute to the works-in-progress.


The Grey Space introduces the makers of Perpetual Beta during this hybrid opening event. There are guest lectures by journalist and writer Sanne Bloemink and artificial intelligence and media philosophy researcher Arif Kornweitz and the event is moderated by Marijke Cobbenhagen. Join online or experience the program on our outdoor terrace with headphones on in a silent symposium.

Sanne Bloemink is an author and journalist who is interested in themes at the intersection of nature, technology, science and humanity. She wrote several non-fiction books and regularly writes for De Groene Amsterdammer.

Arif Kornweitz is part of KIM, a research group on critical artificial intelligence, where he investigates (in)compatibilities between AI ethical standards and humanitarian ethics. He has taught courses in critical design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and HfG Karlsruhe, among others. Arif frequently works with sound and is the co-founder of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, an online radio for the arts.
