>>>> RomaEuropaFAKEFactory
international videoart, music, literature and legislative art competition

http://www.romaeuropa.org
info@romaeuropa.org


GENERATION>>

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.

PROCESSING>>
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.

DISTORSION>>
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.

CUT-UP>>
The overcoming of originality as space for production and its circumbscription 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.

MORPHING>>
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”.

>>HOW-TO<<
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

>>>> RomaEuropaFAKEFactory
concorso internazionale di videoarte, musica, letteratura ed arte legale

http://www.romaeuropa.org
info@romaeuropa.org

GENERAZIONE>>
Il concorso RomaeuropaFAKEFactory nasce da Freedom to Remix, iniziativa promossa da [A]rtis[O]pen[S]ource (Salvatore Iaconesi/xDxD e Oriana Persico/penelope.di.pixel] e Marco Scialdone, con il supporto di DegradArte, ComputerLaw 2.0, NeRVi e Valeria Bochicchio.

ELABORAZIONE>>
RomaeuropaFAKEFactory prende spunto dal concorso RomaEuropa Web Factory per avanzare una riflessione ed una pratica su temi quali i diritti digitali e la proprietà dell’informazione.

DISTORSIONE>>
RomaeuropaFakeFactory è una competizione internazionale che consente ai suoi partecipanti di fare tutto ciò che il regolamento del concorso Romaeuropa Web Factory vieta loro, invertendone le logiche.

TAGLIA, COPIA, INCOLLA>>
Secondo le regole del concorso RomaEuropa Web Factory, prodotto da Fondazione Romaeuropa e Telecom Italia SpA, non è consentito agli artisti di partecipare con opere frutto di remix, mash-up, manipolazione di contenuti pre-esistenti. Questi, inoltre, sono obbligati a cedere, tramite liberatoria, tutti i diritti sulle loro opere, a tempo indeterminato, in esclusiva e a titolo gratuito, oltretutto garantendo agli organizzatori ogni diritto di remixare, manipolare e commercializzare le opere.

Fondazione Romaeuroma e Telecom SpA possono remixare. Gli Artisti no.

CUT-UP>>
Il superamento dell’originalità come spazio della produzione e della sua circoscrizione in termini di proprietà multinazionale – più che la tutela reale dei diritti dell’ autore – vuole essere qui proposto come critica ad una attività di promozione culturale conservatrice, incapace di cogliere le possibilità offerte dalle intersezioni dei piani tecnologici, culturali, sociali ed economico-politiche, che le nuove tecnologie hanno abilitato.

MORPHING>>
Il concorso si rivolge quindi a tutte le figure creative ed agli esperti di discipline legali con una particolare predilezione per il diritto d’autore, invitandoli a creare e ad inviarci le loro opere sul tema “Freedom to Remix “.

>>HOW-TO<<
Quattro le categorie in gara:

– video-arte (100cuts)
– musica elettronica (100samples )
– letteratura (100quotes)
– LawArt , una disciplina creativa tutta nuova dedicata agli esperti e agli amatori del diritto, le cui opere saranno costituite dal remix e dalla produzione di testi legali per le regolamentazione della proprietà intellettuale

Le opere saranno oggetto di studio, di pubblica discussione, verranno raccolte in un catalogo comprensivo di testi critici e giuridici, e saranno sostenute dall’apparato di comunicazione del RomaeuropaFAKEFactory. Su ArtsBlog.it , inoltre, il pubblico potrà votare la sua opera preferita nelle 4 sezioni, stabilendo l’autore del remix più bello (Premio del Pubblico).

RomaEuropaFAKEFactory confluirà inoltre in un happening durante il quale sarà organizzata l’esposizione pubblica di tutti i contenuti generati.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory è un’iniziativa ideata da

[A]rtis[O]pen[S]ource
