8th EDITION GOGBOT FESTIVAL BRINGS YOU ‘DATA-PANIC, YOUTUBE-POOP, JAPANOIIID!’
Festival for music, art and technology highlights the influence of new media on culture and society
From the 8th to 11th of September, the eighth edition of the GOGBOT Festival takes place in the centre of Enschede, an industrial city on the Dutch-German border. This annual festival for music, art and technology, organised by PLANETART, challenges its visitors to explore contemporary social developments in an experimental and intellectual way. Within the theme of ‘Data-Panic, YouTube-poop, Japanoiiid!’ GOGBOT highlights the ever-growing technological developments increasingly influencing our economy, culture and social life. The theme is presented in various art installations, artist presentations, a symposium, workshops, lectures and performances of (inter)national artists.
The upcoming festival edition features a special focus on Japanese art and music; artists such as Ryoji Ikeda, Japan’s leading electronic composer and audiovisual artist, and electronic noise-performer Maruosa, will present their work. Of course many other innovative and challenging artists complete the festival program: Suguru Goto, Palmbomen, T. Raumschmiere, Kid606, Wormskull incl. Bong-ra, N-type, Marnix de Nijs, Ubermorgen, Oliver Laric, Sekitani, Killahbass, MeldyPeaches, Jakes and Kosmos Dj’s, and many, many more…
The GOGBOT festival is one of the biggest media art festivals of The Netherlands and won the National Event Award last May, beating Lowlands and De Vervoering, as the ‘most innovative festival of 2010’. Every year GOGBOT is visited by around 20.000 music and art lovers and welcomes more than 300 artists in Enschede. GOGBOT takes place at eleven different locations in the city and is largely accessible free of charge.
GOGBOT highlight: RYOJI IKEDA | Ikeda is considered Japan’s number one electronic composer and audiovisual artist. All his works are primarily based on the processing of data. Ryoji Ikeda’s hypnotising work plays with human perception through installations, performances, live concerts, recordings and album releases. Ikeda has won many prestigious awards, such as the ‘Ars Electronica Golden Nica’ (2001). At GOGBOT the Japanese artist presents the 8 channel audio installation Dataphonics and his live-performance ‘Testpattern’ | Impression: http://youtu.be/cXAevrYhicI



GOGBOT meets Japanoiid!: SPUTNIKO! | The young and talented Japanese media artist, designer and musician Hiromi Ozaki, also known as ‘Sputniko!’ has the status of a true pop star in her own country. Her projects focus mainly on technology, gender and pop culture. Sputniko! will present GOGBOT visitors with video works and photographic prints of her Sushi-cyborg, Menstruation-machines and Crowbot-Jenny. Earlier this year these projects were already on display in the MoMA in New York | Impression ‘Menstruation Machine’: http://youtu.be/gnb-rdGbm6s
GOGBOT meets Data-panic: HEATH BUNTING | The British Heath Bunting is a colourful figure in the world of media arts. His uncompromising anti-General Motors pamphlets have made him a ‘persona non grata’ in the United Stated and in his own country he is under suspicion of terrorism. Bunting, a true ‘hacktivist’, challenges the system mainly through the use of the Internet.

He is also the founder of irational.org. An underground online training ground for web artists and hackers. At GOGBOT Bunting presents a number of stills from his ‘Status Project’, dealing with ‘official identity’ as a collection of data, influencing our movement in social surroundings, on the Internet, and in private and governmental databases. | Impression: www.irational.org





Music: GOGBOT meets Techno: T. RAUMSCHMIERE | T. Raumschmiere is the pseudonym of Marco Haas. This Berlin based artist has his roots in punk, rock and hardcore, and is well-known for his own brand of pounding, trashy electro/ techno. Raumschmiere is the man behind the Shitkatapult label, played over 150 shows worldwide and has released several successful recordings | Impression: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmlWy6IOmhw
