EUROPEAN SOUVENIRS_LIVE CINEMA PERFORMANCE €urovisions

We see their pictures on the news, illustrating rhetorics about the political and economic causes and preassumed effects of migration - but what are their names? Why are they here? What are their own personal stories? And why don't the media bother to report on people's dreams? Once we were all migrants. €urovisions takes you on a trip in Europe and the homelands of newcomers: Travelling, migrants, nomads, tourists and souvenirs are guiding you through time and history.

€urovisions is a live cinema performance by "European Souvenirs". Produced in collaboration with Chris Allen and Tim Cowie of the Light Surgeons; coordinated by ZEMOS98 collective.

ENTER VIEWS ON CRISIS - WORK IN PROGRESS

In 2012 ArtBOX co-initiated the project Enter Views on Crisis (EVOC) with HyperWerk/ Academy of Art and Design/Basel. EVOC aims to decode, analyse and map the crisis, through the creation of an oral history archive, utilising a specific interview-format to collect information about individual points of view. This open-source archive will be available to researchers, students, opinion makers and artists, helping them to decode and analyse one of the seminal historical events of the early 21st century. Artistic interpretations of the interviews, presented in exhibitions and online, will enrich human interaction across borders, national and societal.

ZEMOS98_EVERYONE CAN BE A REMIXER

The video tutorial Everyone Can Be a Remixer deals with audiovisual remix in the Internet era. The idea behind this is that every cultural content - derived and derivable - stems from the audiovisual ecosystem s of an eternal network of connections that puts us in the situation of prosumers, consumers and producers of content. It is about the narrative ways and the learning processes arisen from the contexts in which we live. Everyone Can Be a Remixer is, more than anything else, an invitation to take part.
