BYOB goes EMAF
BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) goes EMAF (European Media Arts Festival) 2014.
The first BOYB of Lower Saxony will take place during EMAF in Osnabrück, Germany. Artists, filmmakers and moving image enthusiasts are invited to screen their works at Lagerhalle e.V. in the Old Town of Osnabrück. If the weather is good, we will try to project and do some guerilla mapping outdoors onto the ancient city wall.
Life under suspicion - 30 years after “1984”, all of us are under constant observation: achieved via CCTV, by centrally monitoring all electronic devices and by tapping into our entire communication. Orwell’s creation of a naive surveillance dictatorship in his dystopia from 1949 has crept into our everyday lives in a considerably smarter, subtler way. Disciplinary society is changing into a society of (self-)control that seeks to achieve the optimised management of human beings, the body and knowledge and meanwhile does not only violate fundamental rights that formerly seemed to be assured.
The exhibition, performances, accompanying film programmes and talks will reflect upon how we became “enemies”, observed from all sides, and how the contemporary international art scene responds to this phenomenon.
BYOB is a celebration of the new world we live in and a glimpse of what computing could look like in the future. Today the internet is confined to screens. Tomorrow information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether. A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable projection, the realm of experience quickly expands.
We will have a limited amount of beamers that can be booked on the night. Please get in contact if you need one via the facebook event or firstname.lastname@example.org. These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. BYOB is an idea by Rafaël Rozendaal. BYOB goes EMAF 2014 is curated by Yochanan Rauert as part of Visual Society.

BYOB CAPE TOWN!
BYOB is a series of events initiated by cool-guy Rafaël Rozendaal, the Cape Town one is organised by Matty Roodt from Bazaar in association with First Thursday Cape Town.
In Spain “beamer” means projector, but in South Africa everyone thinks it means BMW. Don’t get confused like I know some of the artist already are.
Artist, filmmakers, friends and anyone who has a family member with a projector is invited to come show their experimental projector works in Brundyn+ parking lot from 6:00 to 9:00, 6 March 2014. ORO Africa Building, 170 Buitengracht street, Cape Town.
Everywhere else “experimental” means interesting stuff, in Cape Town it usually refers to “doing less work”, “no work at all” or sometimes “let’s have beers instead”.
Whatever happens, we will be there and we have at least two plug points.
Artist who promised to show up last minute:
Mitchell Gilbert Messina
Herman De Klerk
Christiaan van Eeden
Rachel Amy Kelly
Come join us this First Thursday for an evening of looking at things, carbar beers, box wine and talking to each other.

UNPAINTED BYOB I Munich I 2014
UNPAINTED BYOB I Munich I 2014
18 / 01 / 2014, 6pm - 9pm
UNPAINTED media art fair
Let’s the professionals speak: “UNPAINTED, Munich’s first New Media Art fair, opened its doors on January 2014 to play host to over 50 exhibitors from around the globe, showing work that covers the wide range of artists actively engaging with the internet as a creative medium. Acting equally as an exhibition space, buyer ground, and educational platform, UNPAINTED seeks to broaden Munich’s views on how technology has affected the very fabric of our world. Works ranging from the historical to the up-and-coming were on display, along with performances and lectures covering a range of topics related to art and technology” Spencer Longo wrote at the creatorsproject — Jan 24 2014
One highlight was the UNPAINTED BYOB event and we are happy that Rafaël himself could be our guest. The idea was deceptively simple: we found a space, invited artists and let them bring a beamer: https://vimeo.com/86523087
UNPAINTED BYOB 2014 was curated by the Munich-based media artist Martine-Nicole Rojina and UNPAINTEDs artistic director Annette Doms.
