MyFace: Same Face Party
(excl. € 1,25 frais de service)
19:00 open, 20:00 lecture starts, 22:00 - after party
MyFACE is a series of performances in public space by participating members of the audience wearing masks resembling the artist Laura A Dima. By taking pictures and videos and posting them on social media, they will confuse the algorithms which will then recognise the performer as Laura A Dima’s registered identity who appears to be at several places at the same time. MyFace aims to raise awareness of the danger of a surveillance state, discrimination through automated systems and focusses on digital rights. Besides that it researches how one’s behaviour changes if they are not longer accountable for their own identity by using somebody else’s appearance. Join us on 15 June for an interactive lecture by Laura A Dima and panel discussion while the performers come back from their city tour at Sexyland World. What to expect: exhibition with the returned faces and their online content. During the same-face party, visitors are invited to try on the faces themselves. Exhibition open from 17:00 h. Lecture starts at 8 pm. After Party 10 pm - 1 am with DJs Brothers Boogaloo, Graaf Drankula/ Connie Komen. Hosted by Jordi Ariza Gallego and Laura A Dima. Poetry reading by Bren Booth-Jones. And spontaneous happenings!
