Demonstrating Relevance: Response- Ability. Memefest exhibition in Ljubljana

Monday evening we opened first exhibition in a series of four. The exhibition will travel to Koper, Berlin and to this years final event held at Oddstream festival in Nijmegen in June. Exhibited are selected works from this years Friendly competition and past festivals. Works are presented in all different media, for you to see, read, listen, play with and reflect.

The event was very pleasant. Interested crowd, good discussion with Memefest members and curators: Nik Jeffs, Alen Ožbolt, Nikola Janović and myself at the round table.

After the official part we all continued till late in the night. :)

We have to say we are proud of what we have all together achieved in the past years. It is wonderful to see peoples reactions on our work. We feel we have come to a certain maturity with what we are doing, after nine years, but it is fantastic to see Memefest still growing.

If you are in Ljubljana come and check it out: http://www.memefest.org/en/memenews/2011/03/memefest-exhibition-ljubljana/

Also, have a look at our new book: Demonstrating Relevance: Response- Ability. It is really good!

Any way to know what works were selected for the exhibition -- or did you already inform those artists selected?

hi justin, bellow you can find the list of selected works. it's important to note, that:

a) the exhibition is limited by budget
b) the exhibition is limited by space

there is many more works that we would like to include- without doubt- and we will include more in the future. so this list is definetly not to understand as the "ultimate best of memefest. if you want to see a wider range of selected works, have a look at our book:


here is the list:

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
