"You're going to be told a lot of things. You get told things every day that
don't happen. It doesn't seem
to bother people. It's printed in the press. The world thinks all these
things happen. They never
happened. Everyone's so eager to get the story, before in fact the story's
there. The world is constantly
being fed things that haven't happened. All I can tell you is, It hasn't
happened. But it's going to
happen." Donald Rumsfeld—Feb. 28, 2003, Department of Defense briefing

Paradiso presents "Ooglive" Artists live commentary on the news
at Picnic at night
Friday 29 September 2006
Starts 20:30 uur
Door open 20.00 uur
Price Picnic at night: € 17,50

Ooglive is a live evening program in the Westergasfabriek in which
audiovisual and performing
artists comment on news in a direct and visual way. Ooglive is an evening
divided in two parts
about news, arts and media. In Ooglive the audience will experience the
scale, urgency and
diversity of the news, placing the audience in the middle of the news

In Ooglive more then 35 well known artists from Holland and abroad will be
presenting works
most of which will be unique pieces made for this Ooglive, which can only be
seen at this event.
The first part of the program, 'The Interface', takes place on and around an
interface, projected on
a cinematic scale and inspired by the organized hysteria of 24 hour TV news
channels where all
media streams converge onto a single screen. The multiple possibilities of
multi-media and live
performance will be combined: from SMS to print media, from pre-recorded
presentations to live
feeds, from visual to performing artists. The interface will be developed by
Joes Koppers , whose
work has recently been exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

For the second part of the program, called 'The Newslounge' the audience
will be invited to come
to 'Zuiveringshal Oost,' In a bazaar like environment, Ooglive will present
performances and VJ's. Here Ooglive will join other acts which are part of
the Picnic at Night
event. Amongst others: Riciotti Ensemble and Pipslab. Along with enjoying
the performances and
installations, the audience can have a drink in the many lounge area's and
dance to the beat of DJ
Phill Horneman.
