What happens when the emotional investment you made in your old computers brings you back to the garret where you sent them years ago? When you can’t no longer suffer to work with sophisticated machines that, while promising you more freedom, actually force you to wear the straitjacket kindly designed for you by some corporate guy? When you decide that’s time to put your hands on the machine?

Overbit + Fiumfoto / Goto80 + Raquel Meyers Vj
This series of concerts programmed by Domenico Quaranta (exhibition curator) and Fiumfoto seeks to provide visual artists performances that transcend the purely musical concept, becoming the clearest example of the “readymade” from old electronic technology and trash; or what is the same, the fusion of punk spirit and experimentation of the pioneers of the electronics of the last century.
