Memefest Mexico- a call for collaboration!


Dear Memefest friends!


We have Great news! Memefest Mexico has begun its organizational work for its launch before the end of this year!


The Mexican initiative recognised a strong need for amplifying Memefest ideas in Mexican realities. The team will work on establishing dialogues from a local perspective to understand global issues and at the same time will help strengthen international Memefest community.


We are addressing this invitation to anyone who is interested in joining the Mexican Memefest  team.


For any additional information and all kinds of questions contact hector@memefest.org


Hector Espinoza is a member of Memefest community for several years and actively participated in past editions of the International Festival of Radical Communication. He’s work has been curated at two festivals and he received Memefest good communication work recognition.


 


We are looking forward to hear from you!

MEMEFEST EXHIBITION moves to Koper (Slovenia)

The exhibition MEMEFEST: DEMONSTRATING RELEVANCE: RESPONSE-ABLITIY is moving! After the successful beginning in Ljubljana, nicely acceptance in Berlin and Nijmegen (Netherlands), the exhibition is coming back to Slovenia – precisely to the Adriatic sea, in the town of Koper, Slovenia.




The exhibition is going to be a part of the popular youth event “REVIVING THE STREET” accompanied by various workshops, presentations of local organizations, concerts, exhibitions and performances.


So - You're kindly invited to take part at the opening of the Exhibition on WEDNESDAY, 24th AUGUST 2011 at 20:00 in E-KAVARNA of PINA – multimedia and youth center, Kidričeva ulica 43, Koper.



The exhibition MEMEFEST: DEMONSTRATING RELEVANCE: RESPONSE-ABLITIY  is a selection of static, interactive and visual communication works, which were  curated as part of Memefest competitions between 2002 and 2010. Presented communication works are not contemplative, but responsive and critical. Every single work was created in response to specific problems - as identified by the festival, which draw on current global and local realities of everyday life. The communication works fall on the left side of the today's confusing capitalist spectacle dichotomy: the critical / affirmative visual communication production. Their aim is clear, as they are trying to liberate the trapped views from the spectacle apparatus and open up new horizons of thinking and acting.
