MFF 2010: European Window
Video installations at Flagey

"European Window" presents art projects that support intercultural exchange and connect the local scenes through the media facades of the participating cities. In Brussels, we will show "Get Your Back Up Off the Wall", an interactive video by Nika Radic and "Tales that are never told", a vidéo by the net activists Toxic Lesbian. These custom-made projects will be shown on the Flagey Screen.

"Get Your Back Up Off the Wall" by Nika Radic (HR/DE)
Interactive video, 16:00-20:00, 21:00-22:00

This European party created by Nika Radic will be only celebrated on screens. The party guests representing each city of the festival are first standing or sitting, but once the public engage the screen site, they will get ‘off the wall’ and start moving, talking, and dancing. Through its interactive process, this video transfer the virtual party into the public space where the colours of Europe are reflected.
