Chaos Magic … Success Magic

The 1 Euro Cinema is a small travelling cinematic oracle that will show you a random film in exchange for €1. This machine decides what you will watch… and you’ll either get a bang for your buck with a short documentary or have to quickly enjoy a 1-minute video clip.

The Cinema features over 40 films made by Dutch and non-Dutch artists, revolving around themes such as tangible media, new social changes and invisible technology. The collection is currently curated by Telemagic and functions as a dialogue piece on new media.

For the first time ever, we will bring the Cinema to Macao and temporarily change its name to 1 MOP Cinema.

This version will not only feature films from the existing collection, but will also expand with new films from talented Macanese and Chinese artists… and yours?

For the exhibition in Macau Design Centre (12 July - 21 July 2019), Telemagic calls for all artists with an interest in new media and its societal impact. Submit your film, have it shown across the globe with the 1 Euro Cinema and become part of our artistic network. We are looking for films on chaos magic and success magic relating to belief as a tool of magic, and belief as a technology that creates change.

After Macao, the 1 MOP Cinema will be exhibited in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) to honor the exchange. The dates and location will be announced at a later date, but will take place during winter 2019.

Applicants will receive a message before 05 July 2019.
