MEMEFEST EXHIBITION in Koper / insight

On the 24th of August in the PiNA e-Cafe in Koper we opened the fourth exhibition MEMEFEST: DEMONSTRATING RELEVANCE:RESPONSE-ABLITIY. The exhibition was opened during one of the most known events "REVIVING THE STREET", which the last 12 years brings to life one of the most quiet streets of Koper. The project is organized by the Students' Association of Koper and is extremely popular on the Slovenian coast.

The exhibition attracted a significant number of visitors already on the first evening. Some visitors have taken the time and watched the documentary THE SOCIAL IMPACT OF ART: THE SHORT STORY, which was prepared by the PiNA crew during the ODDSTREAM festival in the Netherlands. The evening passed in a relaxed summer atmosphere, as you can see in the picture that were taken at the opening in Koper. The exhibition will be on display in the e-Kavarna PINA until the 7th of September 2011.

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.

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.
