moddr_ is a Rotterdam-based media/hacker/co-working space and DIY/FOSS/OSHW fablab for artgeeks, part of the venue WORM: Institute for Avantgardistic Recreation.
Since being founded in 2007 by alumni of the Piet Zwart Institute (department of “Media Design“) they host and promote young local and international talent with a focus on the artistic modification (‘modding‘) of contemporary and emerging technology. moddr_ represents a critical attitude in our ‘new’-medialandscape through spawning and development of artistic projects, workshop series, lectures, exhibitions and of course good parties.
WORM is a Rotterdam based artist collective, a venue and a workspace for music, film and new media. Born under the stars of punk, dada, fluxus, situationism and futurism, WORM has grown to a tenacious organisation that combines the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ mentality of it’s ancestors with ultra-pragmatism and good bookkeeping. The output of WORM is film, radio, concerts, performances, web-projects, installations, an array of tactile media and a 24/7 webstation. WORM focuses on OpenSource, re-cycled material, Superuse, seriousness and fun.
