Libertäre Medienmesse | 3. bis 5. September 2010 | Oberhausen | BRD
Dear publishers, media projects and collectives,
we are glad to tell you that the “Libertäre Medienmesse” will take place again in 2012. Because of the publishers' support in 2010 we were able to organize 3 days of fair, presentation of projects, readings, culture, events, information, meeting people and making plans for a world beyond crisis and exploitation. The preparations for the second “LiMesse” are in full swing, so we can renew this weekend on 24th-26th august, 2012.
Of course, some things have basically changed during the last two years.
In 2010 we offered an alternative to the commercial project “Capitol of Culture RUHR.2010” and countered propaganda about a solid and growing economy, which profits would increase our society's general wealth. Already then it indicated, that it was merely about a growing break through the middle of society.
This year, the curtain of the “Capitol of Culture” has finally closed. By now, global crisis can also be noticed on communal plain and several saving measures affect the bigger part of population. We want to invite you as libertarian publishers, media projects and collectives to present your self organized and non-commercial politics. The crisis of capitalism is global, so we would appreciate if some international Mediaprojects will take part, too. You could participate with an own presentation in English or just present your work with a booth.
All important basic data and a review to “LiMesse 2010”, most important information for exhibitors and a contact blank is located at limesse.de (language: German)
If there are any questions in English, please don't hesitate to ask us at contact[ at ]limesse.de
Different from the “LiMesse 2010” that took place in teh city of Oberhausen, it will this year take place–in cooperation with the team of the “Bahnhof Langendreer” social center–in Bochum, a centre of Ruhr.
There you'll have a realistic opportunity to present your political work beyond the scene. More information about the location and its sourroundings may be found here.
Due to the change in location a party is certainly in the program of “Bahnhof Langendreer” on saturday and the book tables have to be put away in a neighbouring and adequately locked room overnight. The amount of work will concern the issuing publishers as little as possible.
If you decide to participate in the “LiMesse”, please declare with the application form.
You are welcome to suggest own projects, lectures, books etc. for presentation!
We're looking forward to an exciting and versatile “LiMesse” and hope to see you in august!
Your Limesse organising collective
