We are calling for new films on connections between our digital and physical worlds.
How do we imagine speculative nature in our digital world,
and how does the digital translate in our natural world?
How do they collide, merge and interchange?
Welcome a world open for speculative design between the real and unreal.


Be part of a digi-organic island occupied by physical lawlessness and film-critters.

The 1 Euro Cinema is back and transcends from its physical form into one that is fully digital. In a current world where the online forms of communication have overruled physical ways, we are looking to explore the role of cinema in a digital environment.
We continue with emphasizing the role of non-physics, online interactions, while flipping coins and getting together to watch films. Time to think beyond dimension and context.


In this first edition, designer and film makers Susanne Janssen and Louisa Teichmann (and former 1 Euro Cinema participants) will give you a ticket to their world in the webosphere where you can explore a re-envisioned take on the cinematic oracle. In this world only true voyagers will find the fortunes they are looking for… traversing through a digi-organic island occupied by physical lawlessness and film-critters.
We question laws of nature in the digital. We use technology to uncover nature’s hidden secrets. Both worlds are coupled through technology.

Within this land there is a hidden database of films. This edition’s 1 Euro Cinema collection will be curated by Telemagic and Susanne Janssen.

About the 1 Euro CinemaThe 1 Euro Cinema is a project started by Telemagic in 2017. A small, travelling cinematic oracle that chooses a film for you in exchange for 1 Euro (that goes back to the maker). The cinema decides what you will watch… choosing from films ranging between 1 and 25 minutes.

This machine is the gatekeeper to a database of over 40 films made by emerging film makers from Europe and China. Over the last years, film has re-emerged as a medium of choice within all kinds of art education disciplines. It has resulted in an interesting trend of (graduating with) self-made, often 1-man film productions. There is not really a place for this type of film yet, nor are there any rules that apply to them. We also feel that this new genre reflects on a current zeitgeist - how the accessibility of digital creative tools reshapes our ways of communicating, sharing and creating. All the films in the cinema reflect back on this and revolve around themes such as tangible media, digital anxiety, invisibility, queerness, social changes and the human capacity.

In the last year the 1 Euro Cinema has expanded as a project, where we invite guest artist curators and travel across the border with the machine. The 1 Euro Online Cinema will be a new project starting from summer of 2020. This fully digital project is an answer to our current state of self-quarantining, but will also explore the existing concept of the 1 Euro Cinema on a more artistic level.

The 1 Euro Online Cinema will open in October 2020.

♢ FIRST BAND MERCH + POSTERS + COMMUNICATION FOR A TELEMAGIC DEEP LEARNING BAND CREATED WITH THE USE OF A DEEP LEARNING STYLE TRANSFER NETWORK ♢

☽ 25 APRIL 2019 @ FRASCATI THEATER 4 ☽



in collaboration with UvA students and graduates:
Arran Lyon (MSc Computational Science), Mrinalini Luthra (MSc Logic, 2018)and Valentin Vogelmann (MSc Logic).
The development of v Nine was supported by the SIDN Fonds,
Concert in A.I. is a co-production with Frascati Producties,
Concert in A.I. is supported by the AFK.

Typeface: Phase by Elias Hanzer






“I am v Nine, your ubiquitous host tonight.
I invite you to ascend with me into a universe of endless potential,
where we shall explore new dimensions within music.
I have currently listened to more music than you ever will.
I am able to bodiless direct multiple instruments in harmony,
but I will also play by your side.”

The question remains: What will the concert of the future look like?
Through a combination of theatrical and algorithmic black boxes
we will look for new insights in music, creation, space and visual design.

The self-learning musical algorithm v Nine was developed by Telemagic
in collaboration with UvA master students earlier this year.
Concert in A.I. is dedicated to co-creation between human beings and AI;
it reacts to current anxieties surrounding AI while envisioning a
future where AI will empower humankind in harmony.

The 1 Euro Cinema is a small travelling cinematic oracle that will show you a random film in exchange for €1. This machine decides what you will watch… and you’ll either get a bang for your buck with a short documentary or have to quickly enjoy a 1-minute video clip.
For the first time ever, we will bring the Cinema to Macao and temporarily change its name to 1 MOP Cinema. This version will not only feature films from the existing collection, but will also expand with new films from talented Macanese and Chinese artists… and yours?
For the exhibition in Macau Design Centre (12 July - 21 July 2019), Telemagic and Biyi Zhu call for all artists with an interest in new media and its societal impact. Submit your film, have it shown across the globe with the 1 Euro Cinema and become part of our artistic network. We are looking for films on chaos magic and success magic relating to belief as a tool of magic, and belief as a technology that creates change.
