Based out of Ljubljana, Slovenia, MEMEFEST is a student-organized exploration
(and celebration) of the dissemination of radical messages (memes) through the
mass media.

Having invited students to respond to a text on branding, MEMEFEST has become a
showcase for multimedia interpretations of consumer and brand-saturated culture.
You are invited to view the submissions at:
www.memefest.org/en/default_visual.cfm
- and you are especially requested to leave your comments on each of the works
in a space provided below.

The organizers of MEMEFEST are really eager to partner with communities in
Europe and overseas. Over time, MEMEFEST is meant to evolve into a permanent
cyber-space for international dialogue on topics such as the public sphere of
communication, the dissemination of social and activist agendas as well as the
problematics of discourses surrounding propaganda and social marketing.
