location: V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media

“We all recognise the by now cliched image of a train carriage full of people pecking at their tiny screens, but have we really registered how miserable this really is, and how much it suits capital for these pockets of socialisation to be closed down?”  – Mark Fisher, Abandon hope (summer is coming)

In these gloomy times of message amplification, The Evening of the Memes hunts through our contemporary meme-culture looking for new strategies to tackle this despondent condition. Should we simply slow down our Internet behaviour to counter the rise of highly efficient memes in a skewed market-driven social media landscape? Or, should we reclaim the Net with more abstract and contemplative memes?

Next to presenting meme related projects, throughout this event we’ll discuss possible perspectives, tools and content to understand how memes introduce and amplify messages.

Featuring:

Jerry Galle
Mike Watson
Caroline Sinders
Mohammad Salemy & Kasra Rahmanian
Mona Lisa’s (Kim de Groot, Barry de Bruin, Maarten Brandenburg)
