Dennis de Bel (1984, Rotterdam, NL) is a hands-on artistic researcher, educator and radio amateur.
His practice oscillates between various configurations of collaborations focusing on collectively exploring hardware, software and various forms of waves.
This is actualised through a broad spectrum of talks, devices, dj sets, workshops and exchanges at for example ISEA, Transmediale, Radical Networks and Relearn, including various educational institutions such as Design Academy Eindhoven and the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam.
In 2017 he co-founded Varia, a physical space to actively develop collective approaches towards everyday technology informed by experiments with building physical, digital and social infrastructures of affinity.
De Bel holds a MA from the Piet Zwart Institute (NL) and most recently participated in the artist in residency program of the Institute for Provocation in Beijing (2018).
