Art’s Birthday 2005

This year’s Art’s Birthday celebrations in Vienna stand under the motto Permanent Creation and will – as in previous years – take place as a networked project with partner nodes around the world joining in and contributing to the broadcast special. For the first time, also the Ars Acustica group of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will participate in the Art’s Birthday special and send acoustic contributions and sound samples serving also as source material for new pieces via satellite, thus expanding the global network by national broadcasting companies in Baden – Baden, Berlin, Madrid, Moscow, Oslo, Prag, Stockholm and Vienna.

In Vienna, the artist groups alien productions and IFTAF – Institute for Transacoustic Research will perform and jam with the partners of the network and will stage miniature performances due to instructions either submitted by the audience or from a collection of action instructions. For these performances, there will be a range of props available in the studio and each of the short acoustic actions will be performed within a fixed setting: a white table equipped with various (analogue) tools.

You can add your instruction for Permanent Creation to an on-line pool, which is the base material for the miniature performances. Furthermore, listeners of Kunstradio as well as artist collegues are invited to come to the studio and join in the action.

on air: OE1 Kunstradio (FM, SW, MW) – 21:00 – 23:00 GMT

on site: Funkhaus, Studio 3, Argentinierstr. 30a, A – 1040 Vienna

The History of Art’s Birthday

WIENCOUVER 2000

“In 1980, when the modern Fax machine was still an exotic promise and computers either massive mainframes or playthings for the hobbyist, artists in Vancouver and Vienna were collaborating on the first of the projects known as Wiencouver. WIENCOUVER 2000 is not a nostalgic look at the early years of Art+Telcomm but an exploration of the new technology available for artists working in the field as we approach the new millenium.”

“Art’s Birthday Party is a celebration in memory of Robert Filliou who declared, on January 17, 1963 that Art had been born exactly 1,000,000 years ago when someone dropped a dry sponge into a pail of water. 10 years later he celebrated Art’s 1,000,010th birthday in the Neue Galerie, Aachen.

After Filliou’s death in 1987 some artists began to celebrate Art’s Birthday with mail-art, fax and slow scan tv events in the spirit of his concept of “The Eternal Network” or “La Fete permanente.” The Birthday parties took place in different cities across the world and artists were asked to bring birthday presents for Art. — works that could be shared over the network.

Art’s Birthday Party has never been a formal event but was always organised on an ad hoc basis through the network. Every participating location (and they are different every year) organises its own party – from a few friends in a private studio to a performance evening in a museum, gallery or radio station . The only condition is that each group is able to send and receive birthday presents for Art. Since 1994 this has usually meant using the Internet in one form or other.

Filliou’s invention of Art’s Birthday is wonderfully absurd and humorous in the typical Fluxus tradition of serious fun. So the global birthday party for art has always tried to be fun while paying homage to Robert Filliou’s dream of The Eternal Network.” Robert Adrian 2004
