Art’s birthday

In january we will be organising Art’s Birthday
(an annual exchange-art event celebrated on January 17th by a loose collection of artists and artist organizations around the world.)

It was first initiated by artist Robert Filliou in 1963. Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives.

In ‘12 we celebrated Art’s Birthday in Swansea (UK) at Elysium Gallery. In January 2013 we would like to celebrate it in Brussels at Ateliers Mommen. For this we will need your help. All people who would like to participate are invited to propose and do take part
and submit performance/workshop/exhibition or other propositionstogether with Radio de la Liberté:
Radio de la Liberté
– a project of Théâtre de la Liberté, is a meeting of artists from different artistic fields who have a prime drive in common: “artistic stem cell research” . We search for expansion on a personal and social level, therefore we take our roles as artists seriously: we are human radio’s receiving the waves from the air and transmitting them. We are actively searching for dynamic rituals and new myths for our times. This is especially tangible -during live moments- in the dynamic nature of form and content. We operate in the broad field of the Performing Arts including theater, dance, film, music, sound, photography, graphic arts, writing. We bring together artists from these disciplines. Each artist has his own research and initiative and meets other researchers. Our mutual communication -be it with words, be it artistically- leads ideally to chemical reactions which will be shared with an audience when the time is right. Théâtre de la Liberté is a place of research. Regularly we break out. We also play/film/record/draw/write in fields, cities, forests, old factories,…
‘All that is necessary is an empty space of time and letting it act in its magnetic way. Eventually there will be so much in it that whistles. The thing to do, is to keep the head alert but empty. Things come to pass, arising and disappearing.’ (from: ‘lecture on something’ van John Cage)
