[ REFF.jected ]
RomaEuropaFAKEFactory Launch Party

In the invisible space of the Neo Club, Rejected invites its rejects to 
the continuous pirate remix of identities, playing on the concept of 
inclusion/exclusion and on musical remix, digital, human, experiential, 
in a series of performances, installations, live VJ sets and DJ sets.

in the Red Room:

"Empty Mirror", live performance by Global Groove, a couple of visionary 
unfair artists that have been working on the idea of the noise of 
fragments for 20 years;

"Remixing People" by xDxD.vs.xDxD, the inventor of [A]rt is [O]pen 
[S]ource and creator of cyber bodies and robotic and software arts, and 
Kevin Pistone, historical figure of Rome's independent photohraphy scene 
and founder of the MyJemmaTemp workshop, joining forces with an 
installation and a photographic set challenging each other disassembling 
and reassembling people's bodies.

All in the frame of ATOMIC, the new qeer party that will instantiate its 
imaginaries built on indie disco and obscene pop with Bebop on the 
controls, the exhibits and performances by Martin Dee vs Industria 

In the Caveau:

an environmental interzone running from Zanzibar to William Burroughs, 
with a 4 DJ squad, 3 VJs and a videoart installation:

Opening set with the tech house by Jason K, Neo Resident and promoter of 
the Bootleg and Fonia parties.

Following up, a part of the history to come of the subversive Rome 
penetrating the world thrugh the paths of D.I.Y. , party culture and the 
Queer imaginaries of the Phag Off project. Warbear connects plots and 
configures libertarian dancefloors with a set of Incredibly Strange 
Techno, mashing up spoken words and vocal samples to 4-quarters 
narrative structures.

Then Bit_Repeat, Rejected resident Djs, with a techno and minimal set.

The video setup is curated by LPM, the global meeting of live video 
performances, providing the best performers from the roster of Flyer 
Visual Agency.

Infidel (Phag Off, L-ektrika,Loaded, Anarchy in the Club), Nikky (Phag 
Off, Sick Marylin) and Aira (L-ektrika, Kitchen) will alternate at the 
video controls creating umoral un-pop visions.

The BEAT-ify installation will allow you to loose yourself in the extasy 
of the synesthesia created between berzerk generative cut-ups and the 
beats of the dancefloor, under the cures of the FLxER team and xDxD.vs.xDxD

Kanu, party shooter and Rejected promoter, will be the witness of the party.

And the news are not yet over.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory adds two new sections and a new deadline (May 15th 

100Flash, dedicated to GIF art


100Spaces, dedicated to design, architecture and landscape

Starting from March 20th, the new web site will be available: a brand 
new Open Source platform to manage competitions and a social network. By 
using it artists will be able to register their remix artworks to the 
literary (100Quotes), music (100Samples), video (100Cuts), LawArt (legal 
remix of legislative texts on copyright and patents), and to the two new 
sections: 100Flash and 100Spaces.
