Memefest festival 2012

We are currently working on the next festival Friendly competition outlines and are already excited about the outcomes. 


They will be published in February. Deadline for submission of you works will be May 20th 2012. So we still have plenty of time, but you should keep this date somewhere in the back of your head.


After long discussions within Memefest collective we will also change the festival name to: MEMEMEFEST- FESTIVAL OF SOCIALLY RESPONSIVE COMMUNICATION AND ART.


We will write about this more soon, but for now and in short: Socially responsive communication is the theory and the practice behind what we do and it has evolved in the past 10 years while working and researching with our networks. As for ART- many, many artists have always participated in Memefest. Although we looked at art from a communications perspective- art is communication- we think there is a distinction, BUT there is also a strong overlapping. 


 


Soon more. Its gonna be a great year!

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.
