MFF 2010 & SHARE BRU: Connected Cities
Networked A/V Performances

"Connected Cities" features Joint Broadcasting Events that happen simultanously and interactively across the borders. For the opening of the Ars Electronica Festival, the cities of Brussels, Liverpool, Helsinki, Berlin, Budapest and Madrid will join forces and present two live broadcasted audio-visual performances.

In Brussels we will couple this event to an open air SHARE BRU session where you are invited to join for an A/V jam in iMAL's courtyard.
