DIY - Do it yourself

IRATIONAL ACTION WEEKEND :: September 15-17, 2006 in Dortmund, Germany, various venues :: DIY - Do it yourself - is the central theme of the irational Action Weekend and you are cordially invited to participate!

On Friday night, Sep 15, Daniel G. Andújar (Valencia) invites you to present the Open Source software you like most, and to share it with others. This will be accompanied by an open bbq - please bring your own grill-food and drinks! During the "Tour de Fence" by Kayle Brandon and Heath Bunting (Bristol) on Saturday one can learn how to climb walls and fences and thus hack urban space. This scope is also addressed by the "International Tree Climbing Day" taking place on Sunday which will also be lead by Brandon and Bunting. Its motto is “Liberate the Horizontal! - Integrate the Vertical Super Surface!" “Natural Reality Superweed" gets planted in an appropriate Superweed Garden in front of the PHOENIX Halle. The genetically mutated superweed is resistant against Monsanto's roundup herbicides. Rachel Baker presents “Towards Death", a creative aerobic video with Cindy Crawford and music by Antifamily. The Mexico-based Mejor Vida Corporation issues Student ID cards on request which anybody can apply for in the exhibition "The Wonderful World of irational.org". On Sunday, the Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas (Mexico City) presents the actions by Mejor Vida Corporation in a lecture.

The program will be accompanied by guided tours (in German) through the exhibition “The Wonderful World of irrational.org" at PHOENIX Halle and a fabulous 10-years HMKV birthday party with the Irational Soundsystem (Valencia, Bristol, London, Mexico City), the HMKV Soundsystem (Dortmund) and Dortmund-based DJ Carstem Helmich (taxi nights).
