Last October "Wanna play? (Love in the time of Grindr)" - the installation by the Dutch artist Dries Verhoeven - led to controversy in Berlin where it was produced and presented by HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Many users did not want the anonymous chats visible to outsiders without being asked before. The theatre and Dries decided to end the piece prematurely.
For the version in Utrecht, Dries will make a number of changes, so there can be no misunderstanding of the intention of the project. “Wanna play? (Love in the time of Grindr)” can be seen in May 2015 at SPRING Festival, 21 – 30 May in Utrecht.
