OPEN CALL: Art's Birthday

Nov 13, 2007 6:04 am
Celebrating Art's Birthday is a tradition started by French Fluxus artist Robert Filliou who declared, on January 17, 1963, that Art had been born exactly 1,000,000 years ago when somebody dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Throughout the last decades artists continued organising annual celebrations in the spirit of Filliou's "Eternal Network" or "La Fête permanente." In 2008 people all over the world will again be preparing numerous networked birthday parties for art, several of these under the motto "Forever Young."

Kunstradio invites you to join our celebration by contributing presents to our party, which will take place on site at Common Ground, QDK, Museumsquartier Q21 in Vienna from 8 p.m. on January 17, 2008. These presents we invite you to upload to our present pool online under

We will be listening in on your presents and streams during our party on site in Vienna, artists will re-mix and further distribute these online and via our live Kunstradio broadcast on the cultural channel on the Austrian National Radio Ö1 from 11 – 12 p.m. CET, as well as on the EBU satellite.

A selection of presents will also be presented in later on air editions of
Kunstradio. Should you have any questions or plan to organise a party yourself, please do not hesitate to contact us under: Spread the word! This is a party you can bring as many people and presents as you wish! More about Art's Birthday can be found here:
