Riders on the Mall / ROM
MÜSZI / Budapest, 27-29 May, 2016
Riders on the Mall (ROM) is a unique gathering of audiovisual jockeys, ranging from virgin riders to experienced charioteers, from experts in New Media Art to audiences interested in audiovisual and technological trends. ROM deliberately puts emphasis on visuality within the current art scene, scanning the audiovisual landscape in Hungary and abroad for fresh threads, merging it into a panorama of what-comes-next.
ROM will enter its first edition in May 2016 as a project by MÜSZI, an independent cultural centre located on the 3rd floor of the old Corvin Department Store in Budapest. ROM#1’s line up will consist of an exhibition with focus on art & tech installations, workshops, a VJ’amboree, audiovisual live acts, and thematical presentations and discussions with interdisciplinary focus. We welcome people from all walks of life, especially youngsters who want to look beyond their comfort zone, experiment and widen their vocabulary of contemporary visual culture.
ROM is part of the cultural cooperation LPM 2015 > 2018 realized within the international audiovisual network AVnode, with the contribution of the Creative Europe Culture Program for European Cooperation Projects, involving 14 partners from 13 European countries.
