The Oslo dimension of EuroNoize manifests as a gallery-scale video jukebox, with a 5 metre screen, a 2K sound system and a diverse, deep but hand-picked selection of rare films, home movies, music clips and artists’ video. The programme will change through the exhibition, you can see the current line up here.
EuroNoize is a project exploring the histories connecting DiY music and the visual arts and the informal networks upon which this cultural activity is built. The project was initiated by the artists Pil and Galia Kollectiv and is produced in collaboration with the University of Reading and ARE, Prague. The EuroNoize screening programme was selected by Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Paula Guerra, Simon Reynolds, Matt Worsley, ARE and Kunsthall Oslo among many other contributors.
More on EuroNoize:
At the heart of the EuroNoize project is an alternative music showcase modeled on the Eurovision Song Context, in which musicians were invited to consider the interplay of local and global identities in representing their country with a specially commissioned song and video. The live event in London was streamed online and broadcast at partner venues. A conference at the University of Reading explored the histories connecting DiY music and the visual arts and investigated the challenges inherent in formalising the informal networks upon which this cultural activity is built. Conference proceedings will lead to a publication in which these themes will be expanded. Finally, the music produced for this live event will be released as a record and disseminated internationally together with the book and an exhibition at Kunsthall Oslo. The project’s explicit aim is to think of and implement strategies and modes of cooperation between art institutions, DiY musicians and internally between various bands across the continent to facilitate the continuation of these often short-lived practices.
