IslandCQ 2013

Just found this picture. It was during the last edition of IslandCQ in May 2013 in the old Monotori Fortress in Hungary Komárom close to the Hungarian and Slovakian border. The Monostori Fortress was built between 1850 and 1871 to defend Hungary against Turkish invaders and was used as an enormous ammunition storage facility by the Soviets, after the Second World War. Nowadays a part of it is open for public as a museum. This isolated and historical rich location was the ideal background for the 2013 edition’s theme ‘Crisis! -RE/Constructing Europe’
2IslandCQ is a 10-day, location based, international art, media, and technology exchange project that facilitates workshops, lectures, exhibitions, concerts, and performances, developed and organised by students from the various partner universities from Finland, Latvia, Hungary, Belgium, and the Netherlands. IslandCQ is initiated by Minerva Academy of Popculture and developed as an Intensive program partly financed by Erasmus, and consisted of 3 editions organised in 3 different countries between 2010 and 2013. My task was to develop the concepts and the main program. I think I was explaining an environment mapping assignment to 65 participating students. For more info about the project check the site
