Music video launch

Pay what you can

buren presents:
COMPUTER_SONG

You are cordially invited to the launch of buren (the collective of Oshin Albrecht & Melissa Mabesoone)'s music video COMPUTER_SONG

💻

!
The text and the song describe the relation we have or could have with a computer. buren asks questions to this "fellow life companion" and approaches the object with serious and sensual interest, shedding new light on the almost absurd actions we all perform so often. Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V. Copy and paste.

The music video will be accompanied with an informal and informative radio-slash-dj-session from the computer_song_database, you can listen to it and move your feet while drinking a special cocktail made by musician-masseur-cook Benne Dousselaere. Cinematography by Anaïs Chabeur.

COMPUTER_SONG_COCKTAIL at Kunsthal Gent, Saturday August 28, 17:00

buren

buren is a collective founded by Oshin Albrecht and Melissa Mabesoone. Through performance, video, text, objects, photography and installation they navigate ideas of community, domesticity, gender, (art) history and neoliberal fantasies. With a strong visual and musical drive, buren approaches the scene as a critical playground, a surface on which they continuously re-play.
