Film/Music Event: BYOB (Bring your own Beamer) MK

Saturday 15 November / 7.30pm / Free / Pre-booking essential via Eventbrite


BYOB (Bring your own Beamer) is a one-night-exhibition hosting artists, their projectors and a curated selection of live music. The first edition of BYOB was initiated by Anne de Vries & Rafaël Rozendaal in Berlin, 2010. 

Contributors and live music annoucements forthcoming.



Call for Artists


Participation is encouraged. Artists, film-makers, designers, creators and civilians are open to project works but application is required. MK Gallery are able to supply a limited number of digital projectors, however, if you wish to project 16mm, Super 8 etc. you’ll need to supply your own equipment.

There is no set aspect ratio, resolution or format. No theme or limit on duration however works will be muted due to ongoing audio-based performances throughout the night.


"BYOB is a celebration of the new world we live in and a glimpse of what computing could look like in the future. Today the internet is confined to screens. Tomorrow information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether. 

A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable projection, the realm of experience quickly expands." (Rafaël Rozendaal)



What does BYOB mean?


BYOB is an acronym for “Bring your own Beamer”. In Europe projectors are often referred to as “beamers”.
