Memefest 2023

A celebration of digital folklore and humour on the Internet

Festivals

It’s time once again for Memefest, the cultural event that takes a light-hearted and cathartic look at humour on social media. 

19.00 | Disconnect to connect
Motivational guidance talk with #Soytuinfluenser

In this collective healing and holistic practice session, #InfluenSer will help us find peace, far from mobile phone notifications. If you’re a bit of an Internet junkie, we recommend that you follow their revolutionary techniques and disconnection advice.

 

19.30 | Crash Course in Internet apologies
With Ofèlia Carbonell and Pol Andiñach (Cuellilargo)

Screwed up? Your sexist and/or racist and/or classist and/or homophobic joke didn’t get the likes you expected and now you’re afraid you’ll get kicked out of the WhatsApp group, padel group or the podcast project with pals? Fear not. On this course you’ll learn to formulate the public declaration that lets you back into society. Using different techniques, we’ll create an apology that’s so perfect that your followers will have to apologize to you for having misunderstood.

 

20.00 | There is love on the Internet, and we love the Internet
With Estela Ortiz and Rita Roig

They say that the Internet has drained relationships of love and that it’s a hostile, shallow, dangerous place. Faced with the menaces of ghosting, catfishing and submarining, we prefer to focus on the love that’s going down in the digital world, where it’s possible to create a community based on tweets or TikToks, and where vulnerability lets you share personal experiences and find shared places not to feel alone. Internet is full of lesbian dramas, men in search of the clitoris, parasocial relationships, dating tips, cute animals and, most of all, gossip, lots of gossip.

 

20.45 | Exposed: the joys and paradoxes of an extremely online life
With Berta Prieto (Autodefensa), Luna Ki and Begoña Gómez Urzaiz

Lots of young creators show their professional and personal lives openly, uncomplicatedly and freely on social networks. The limits between real life and fiction blur and can often make the public that follows these life stories uncomfortable. The constant exposure of these creators to the networks opens them up to criticism, but how do they see and explain their digital lives? Journalist Begoña Gómez Urzaiz will be talking to two authors who have based part of their work on public overexposure: the singer Luna Ki and the actress and director Berta Prieto.

 

21.35 | Els Cundits show

Before, enjoy a free beer at the Memefest bar, courtesy of Estrella Damm.
