The mekka & symposium is a demo-scene party that is organized annually at Easter. More than 1000 young Multimedia artists gather here for four days in order to meet similarly-minded people, to exchange ideas and to participate in the competitions, in which individuals and groups show off their talents in a certain form of electronic art called Demos.
ms2002 has been the eighth event in a traditional party series that started back in 1995, when 300 mostly German visitors attended the BlackBox Symposium. To this year's party came 1220 visitors from all over Europe, and beyond -- "sceners" have come to celebrate with us from countries as remote as Estonia and Israel!
This is no LAN or gaming party. People playing Qu*ke or Half-Life on our events would be considered non-creative by our "serious" visitors, and as a matter of fact, the participation of gamers on our parties has always been exceptionally low, which makes the MS one of the last big enjoyable events for real sceners. Nevertheless, everybody is invited to join, provided they respect the underlying principles of this scene -- in other words: if you want to play games, look out for alternative parties, please.
