Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB)
House of Electronic Arts Basel
raumD, Oslostrasse 12, 4142 Basel/Münchenstein
24 August 2013, as part of the Oslo Night, from 6 p.m.

BYOB is a one-night-only exhibition initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal (*1980). Realized for the first time in Berlin in 2010, over 80 BYOB events have taken place all over the world, in cities like Paris, London, Manchester, Boston or New York City.

The event only takes place during one night and its unique DIY-style attracts both local and international artists who enjoy experimenting with film and new media. Organized by the House of Electronic Arts Basel, BYOB Basel will be the first staging of the event in the German-speaking part of Switzerland.

As part of the Oslo Night 2013

BYOB Basel is staged as part of the Oslo Night, a one-night festival at the Dreispitz site that first took place in September 2012 as a collaboration with all cultural institutions situated at Oslostrasse. These include the House of Electronic Arts Basel, the art space OSLO10, OSLO 8 contemporary photography, the international artist exchange programme iaab, Radio X and the photo laboratory Pascale Brügger and TRISUL.
On August 24, 2013, the actors at Oslostrasse will once again open their doors to a wide public and turn the street into a festival site. Exhibitions, performances, workshops, concerts and a party are planned, touching upon the subject of “web culture” and the “sharing phenomenon” and also celebrating the transformation of a former industrial area into a cultural hub.
