REFF / RomaEuropa Fake Factory. A detourned competition

RomaeuropaFAKEfactory is an international Videoart, Music, Literature,
GIF-Art, Architecture, Design, Landscape and Law Art competition started in
January 2009 as a critical reaction to the Fondazione RomaEuropa's
WebFactory, to develop an action/reflection on the meaning of art, culture
and creativity in the contemporary era, on the models for access and on the
relations among intellectual property and new business models.

The competition, revolves around the "Freedom to Remix" theme, and is
dedicated to young creatives, new media artists, writers, musicians,
architects, designers, landscape artists, jurists and to intellectual
property enthusiasts and researchers, but also to all those cybernauts that
have a will to get their creativity involved.

All the works created using any technique related to remix, cut-up, mash-up,
analog and digital, including works created using software and algorithms
are accepted to the competition. To register and send in your works please
refer to the website and to the specific sections.


The competition does not assign prizes or create linear rankings. The prize
consists in the critical review of the works and in their active promotion
through operators and distribution circuits, starting from the international
network of the 70+ partners that are currently supporting REFF, and in the
creation of public events creating involvement and visibility.

With this goal in mind, the works will be reviewed by the curators through
an open, transparent and monitorable online process. The scientific
committee will also participate to the evaluation process, just as the
public audience, that will be able to contribute through the mechanisms of
voting and commenting, available on the platform.

The works will be used to form a catalog that will be the final product of
the overall evaluation and review process.

Everything will flow, in fall 2009, into a big exhibition/performance
happening, distributed around several locations in Rome, London, New York,
and possibly some more.
