RomaEuropaFAKEFactory Call

fakefactory.jpgRomaEuropaFAKEFactory — an international videoart, music, literature and legislative art competition.

The RomaeuropaFAKEFactory competition originates from the Freedom to Remix initiative, promoted by [A]rt is [O]pen [S]ource [Salvatore Iaconesi/xDxD and Oriana Persico/penelope.di.pixel] and Marco Scialdone, with the support of DegradArte, ComputerLaw 2.0, NeRVi and Valeria Bochicchio.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory draws on the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition to embrace a series of reflexions and practices focused on the issues of digital rights and information ownership.

RomaeuropaFakeFactory is an international competition allowing its participants to do everything that is forbidden by the rules of the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition, subverting its logics.

CUT, COPY, PASTE: According to the rules of the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition, produced by the Romaeuropa Foundation and by Telecom Italia SpA, participation is not allowed to those artists creating their works using remix, mash-up and manipulative techniques on pre-existing content. Furthermore, to participate, the artists have to sign a legal disclaimer making them give up all the rights on their artworks: indefinitely, exclusively, for free, and also allowing the contest producers to freely edit, remix, mash-up, commercialize.

The Romaeuroma Foundation and Telecom SpA can remix. Artists can not.

The overcoming of originality as space for production and its circumscription in terms of multinational property – more than the real protection of the author’s rights – is used in this context as a critique to a conservative practice of cultural promotion that is not able to grasp the possibilities offered by the intersections of the technological, cultural, social and economical-political planes, enabled by contemporary technologies.

This competition is addressed to all forms of creative profiles and to the experts of legislative disciplines with a specific predilection for intellectual property related subjects, inviting them to submit their artworks on the theme “Freedom to Remix”.

The four categories in the competition:

– 100Cuts:videoart [ http://www.romaeuropa.org/videoart.html ]
– 100Samples: electronic music [ http://www.romaeuropa.org/music.html ]
– 100Quotes: literature [ http://www.romaeuropa.org/words.html ]
– LawArt [ http://www.romaeuropa.org/law.html ] , a brand new creative discipline dedicated to law experts and jurisprudence amateurs, whose works will be constituted by remix and production of legal texts regulating intellectual property

The works will be the object of a research, of public debate and will be collected in a catalogue together with the critical and legal texts. Furthermore, they will be supported by RomaEuropaFAKEFactory’s communicational apparatus. A public voting system will also be set up on ArtsBlog.it [ http://www.artsblog.it ] so that the general audience will be able to vote its favourite work in the 4 sections, thus declaring an audience-proclaimed winner.

RomaEuropaFAKEFactory will be finalized into a public happening during which the exhibition of all the generated content will take place.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory is an initiative conceived by [A]rt is [O]pen [S]ource with the promotion and the support of

Torino Share Festival – DegradArte – Istituto per le Politiche dell’Innovazione – BeatPick, ComputerLaw 2.0 – LPM, Flyer Communication – PerformngMedia – FLxER – ShockArt.net – NeRVi – Digicult – Associazione Partito Pirata – Nephogram.net – Les Liens Invisible – A.H.A. – Francesco “Warbear” Macarone Palmieri – Superfluo – Deliriouniversale – My Jemma Temp
– ArtsBlog.it – CodiceBinario …

The current group of promoters are open to new collaborations. It is possible to collaborate with the management of the website and of the communication, with the implementation of the researches and of the texts published in the catalogue, and with the organization and logistics of the final event. An open system will be set-up shortly to support the collaborative development and management of the whole project.
