The Networked Possibilities of Urban Screens and Media Facades


MEDIA FACADES FESTIVAL EUROPE 2010 (MFF2010) is an urban media pilot  
project that interconnects seven European cities through the existing  
infrastructure of urban screens and media facades sited in public  
spaces.

Artists and media designers will show especially developed art  
projects Europe wide, through screenings and Joint Broadcasting  
Events, for the circulation of cultural exchange. Media facades will  
be transformed into local stages, connecting public audiences  
virtually with participating places and opening a global window to  
create dialogue, to share dreams and exchange ideas.

MMF2010 is based on the success of the MEDIA FACADES FESTIVAL BERLIN  
2008, both initiated by Susa Pop / Public Art Lab and Mirjam  
Struppek / Interactionfield.


Curatorial Programme

The following main curatorial topics have been developed out of the  
collaboratively selected screening projects. From 27 August to 2  
October 2010 each festival day has a special focus on one of the  
following themes.

*   Connected Cities: Joint Broadcasting projects that happen  
simultaneously and interactively across the borders

*   Urban Activism: Reclaim the Screens! An activist approach to  
opening screens for the urban community

*   Human Screens: Human processes are visualised on media facades

*   Organic Cities: Public Data projects use information resources  
from the environments and develop a real-time software programme for  
live streaming

*   Public Playing: Games designed as an interaction catalyst for the  
public audience

*   European Dialogue: Projects that especially support intercultural  
exchange and connect the local scenes through the media facades  
infrastructure of the participating cities

*   Citizens Journalism: Research and participatory projects of local  
scenes

*   Recontextualise: A shared video platform on a central server to  
create local screening programmes
