Richard Vijgen on data visualisation

How do you tell stories with data? In times of abundant flows of Open and Big Data, processing, interpreting and visualising it has become hip and happening. For designers and artists, data forms an interesting, dynamic material with which they can visualise social, cultural, political and economic patterns.

Brussels Wild

In collaboration with the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam and the Vereniging Deltametropool, we will seek out untamed nature in the city at the tail end of the summer. We are screening two films that address the subject in different ways: Louis Le Roy and Brussels Wild.

For this occasion, The New Garden, designed and planted by artist Frank Bruggeman and ecological gardener Hans Engelbrecht, will act as an outdoor cinema. The garden also inspired the choice of films: Brussels Wild and a short film about Louis Le Roy. The programme starts at 8 pm when, before darkness descends, we will talk about how wild the city should become and who is to decide this. With contributions from amongst others Hans Engelbrecht and Frank Bruggeman.

Janno Lanjouw on the best of 5 years Food Filmfestival

The first Lecture Night of the new cultural season is entirely devoted to food. Janno Lanjouw, programme director of the Food Filmfestival, will serve up the tastiest, scariest and funniest fragments from the past five years in an interactive presentation.

Lanjouw sketches a comprehensive picture of the many aspects of food: pleasure, hunger, modern agriculture with all its virtues and vices, the effect of food hypes on the environment, what happens to the human brain when we eat, and the world of haute cuisine. Food producers from Rotterdam garnish the evening’s proceedings with plenty of flavour.

Arrive in plenty of time, because at 6:30 pm you can enjoy a Thursday Night Dinner specially composed for the evening by Gilbert Kolff. Reservations are taken by Eventbrite
