INVITATION TO JOIN KUNSTRADIO'S CELEBRATION OF ART'S Birthday 2009!
Celebrating Art's Birthday is a tradition started by French Fluxus artist Robert
Filliou who declared, on January 17th 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 2009 people all over the world will again be preparing numerous networked birthday parties for art, several of these under the motto “Safe and Sound”.
Kunstradio invites you to join the worldwide celebration by contributing presents to our party, which will take place in Hainburg on January 16th and 17th 2009.
These presents we invite you to upload to our present pool online under Upload-Tool
We will be listening in on your presents and streams during our party on site at the exhibition "Magical Soundmachines" in Hainburg , artists will re-mix and further distribute these online and via our live Kunstradio broadcast on the cultural channel of 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: kunstradio [at] kunstradio [dot] at
Spread the word! This is a party you can bring as many people and presents as you wish!
