‘CC-Bye Bye Baby!’ (#societybaby) is a mini karaoke club built under the roof of Research Pavilion that invites participants to sing songs with lyrics that are transformed from EU open access manifesto texts, infested by ‘baby’-s and ‘yeah’-s, accompanied by kitsch imagery of western karaoke videos and audio with bland pop-y beats.

Grab the mic, sing Society Baby, and show us what you got to
