Bring Your Own Beamer was successfully held in Norrköping on 8th of February.
Norrköpings is the 10th biggest city in Sweden, located 160 km south of the capital Stockholm.
The event got a lot of publicity in the local and regional newspapers. Also, the regional radio did an interview with the curators Yvonne Olofsson and Moa Hannerz Simå about BYOB.
It was a appreciated and fun evening of beamers, live video and DJ’s with 11 contributors from the region as well as from other parts in Sweden and Los Angeles.
A lot of people came up to us and asked when the next BYOB will be held in Norrköping!

Bring Your Own Beamer
Verkstad-rum för konst
February 8 2013
21:00 to 01:00
Verkstad- rum för konst in Norrköping, SWEDEN are very happy to present Bring Your Own Beamer as the first event of the year.
This evening will celebrate the video, a way of making art that not long ago was a very complex and elaborate medium to work with. Due to development of technology and digitalization, creating video art has become more accessible to a larger group of practitioners. Bring Your Own Beamer is an international art phenomena which testifies of the global world we live in and project a window towards the future. The event is a contemporary version of the salon where the beamers challenge our perception of what an image could be.
Norrköping is the 10th biggest city in Sweden. There is a small but strong art community here. On the night of the Norrköping version of BYOB, a live video session will be performed by the artist collective sikk among with all the beamers.
