EXCHANGE RADICAL MOMENTS! Live Art Festival
EXCHANGE RADICAL MOMENTS! Live Art Festival is tempting to make an effective break into our daily routine. Live Art projects, which meets us in the middle of our everyday life, which interrupts the usual routine and unbalances us, hold, pause. They ask us: Are we ready to engage extraordinary moments of exchange?
This festival is a Europe-wide exchange and co-operation project which culminates in a one-day festival on 11/11/2011. The various events will consist of site-specific interventions, public interventions, performances and live acts. All connected and visible via Internet and Livestreaming.The project is initiated, organized and developed by DIE FABRIKANTEN (a Linz based bureau for communication culture, client and community-based art work). Co-organizers are from Italy (aMAZElab), Czech Republic (TINA B.), Austria (KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd / pro mente Upper Austria), Macedonia (Elementi) and Germany (Slubfurt). Associated Partners are from Moldova (ksa:k), Latvia (LCCA), Germany (ASA, Babusch, Performer Stammtisch) and England (TTT Tomorrow‘s Thoughts Today).
What is being exchanged?
- Ideas and projects dedicated to the (re-)activation, the inventive (and resourceful) handling of public space
- Experiences from sub-cultures, counter-cultures, from the social outbound (-cast) districts, the margins of society
- Questions that characterize the urban utopia
- And “radical moments” that take place in and between encounters; moments that have a certain magical impact on the involved peoples
The project has been funded – among others – with the support of the European Commission.
