Mash Up-Europen Media Art Festival
Venue: Kunsthalle Osnabrück
Productions by internationally renowned media artists and the innovative works of new masters from the academies will be presented at the 23nd European Media Art Festival (21-25 April 2010). The EMAF is one of the most influential forums of international Media Art. As a meeting point for artists, curators, distributors, gallery owners and an audience of specialists, the festival has a great impact on the topic and aesthetics of Media Art. Each year the festival offers its visitors a current overview of new experimental films, performances, lectures, an exhibition and the Media Campus.
The frame of content of the festival is ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements.
The motto of the 2010 festival is MASH UP, reflected in film programmes, lectures and specials. Today, the reinterpretation and re-coding of media content, works of art and music take place in popular culture and art alike. In the process, mashing up citations and references evolves into the aesthetic, satirical and subversive stylistic device, where it also infringes on the rights of third parties.
