Excerpt from announcer text: "Our goal with this exhibition is to temporarily transform the Netherlands Media Art Institute into a center for what the artists collective De Geuzen call “multi-visual research”. Not only a gallery space alone but an “art and knowledge workshop”."
"In the installation Global Anxiety Monitor, the artists collective, De Geuzen (a foundation for multi-visual research) deploys Google’s multi-lingual image search functions to look at the way different key words raise the anxiety temperature of different cultures including Arabic, English, Hebrew and Dutch, monitoring the ebb and flow of global anxiety."
