Go with the Flow or: Digital Fluxus. The CAMP Festival for Visual Music

The Salon Suisse is pleased to host the CAMP Festival for Visual Music, founded in 1999 in Germany by Fried Dähn and Thomas Maos. CAMP is a unique forum and interactive laboratory for sound artists, media artists, VJs and musicians. The nomadic festival takes place in cities throughout Europe and features experimental and electronic music in dialogue with visual art, mostly in the form of projections and installations. For several days, a group of artists, who belong to the international avant-garde in their field, collaborate on audio-visual projects and present them to the public in a final performance. In the spirit of the Fluxus movement, all works are developed from scratch, on the spot. The concept of CAMP mirrors our hybrid digital era in which improvisation is paramount and in which genres, media, techniques and affiliations are more intertwined than ever before. The event will be accompanied by a panel discussion with Fried Dähn, Thomas Maos and Jörg Scheller.
