Images that are endlessly remixed, taken from their context, given a new subtext and placed back online, gifs of grumpy cats and videos that go viral are part of our daily life. What do you meme? Besides emoji’s, we also express ourselves in recognizable funny memes. However one meme isn’t like the other. One meme makes has a direct line to your funny bone, the other makes you furious. Memes have been repurposed ceaselessly and reposted that we have no idea where the original actually comes from. Memes come and go, but will their influence remain? On 20 September, we zoomed in on the memescape. A crazy evening full with aha moments, memorable presentations, a super exciting meme battle and chill tunes.
