Betreff: call for presents/works – Art’s Birthday 2012 – Kunstradio,
Austrian National Radio (ORF)

Dear all,

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 organizing annual
celebrations in the spirit of Filliou’s „Eternal Network“ or „La Fête
permanente“. In 2012 people all over the world will again be preparing
numerous networked birthday parties for art.

Kunstradio invites you to join our celebration by contributing
presents to our party, which will take place in Vienna on January 17th
2012. These presents in the shape of sounds, images or video, we
invite you to upload to our present pool online under Upload-Tool: http://www.kunstradio.at/PROJECTS/AB2012/presents-upload.php

A selection of presents will also be presented in later on air radio
editions of Kunstradio.
