Kindly see the flyer attached for more information on featured artists.
Over the course of two years, artistic residencies from eleven artists converged at the Iwalewa Haus, University of Bayreuth. From these residencies and art projects intermittently spanning over 15 months and involving artists from Africa and Europe all with a focus on visceral remixes of the museum`s contents, emerged the idea of MASHUP. This simply implies a mixture of at least two elements to create a third. Mashup is a practice which often vibrates within digital circuits where the mix of sound, video and still imagery are aptly possible.
A tangible body of works from the Mashup program is presently being hosted in Bayreuth and will run from the 30th of May until the 29th of September 2015 with the participation of artists from Uganda, Nigeria, Germany, Austria and more. The Mashup is holding under the project direction of Ulf Vierke and Nadine Siegert with the artistic direction of Sam Hopkins. Uche Uzorka, one of the featured artists, will present the Mashup satellite in Lagos.
