EVENTS IN 1999


1999 - THE YEAR OF CONTEXTS - IN ARTPOOL

17 January, 1999

FILLIOU WEB-SITE

inaugurated at Artpool as a tribute to Robert Filliou and to commemorate the 1000036 Anniversaire de l´Art (Art´s Birthday) on 17.01.1999

Robert FILLIOU proclaimed Jan.17 (his Birthday) to be Art´s Anniversary. This arbitrary and revendicative act projected a utopic desire for worldwide official proclamation of AA by political powers in the spirit of La Fête permanente and recognition of artist work and implication. People and groups gather each year celebrating and promoting AA and trying to encourage its political officialisation.

FOOT-WARE
international exhibition

FOOT - being one of Nature's personal and indispensable endowments, in its existence and usage, inseparably represents both intellectual and poetic relations.
Foot and Foot-ware - as performance and installation. The context of the personal (foot) and the impersonal (footwear -> footware!): the combined / simultaneous reading of the individual, tribal, national, international, biological, philosophical, technological, social, political, and artistic contents offers an opportunity for a different kind of reading in the framework of an exhibition and a publication.

The project corresponds to Vilém Flusser's idea: "What science, art and politics will draw out of us, once they are bound into a unified way of reading, will exceed our wildest dreams." [invitation]

TRIBUTE TO DICK HIGGINS
International exhibition

...From 1965, Dick Higgins uses the Intermedia concept as revealing to establish the existence of intermedia art works " with this notion, there is a conceptual fusion and you can't really separate out the different media in an integral way "; intermedia concept which is still claimed by most of the current artists.
This exhibition, full of testimonies, derision, anecdotes, texts, photos, collages, scores, unusual encounters, digital pictures - a wink to new technologies- , and films is an homage to Dick Higgins, who left us suddenly during the night of the 25th to the 26th of October 1998... (Silvie Ferré, curator)

On the exhibition a video documentation (by G. Galántai) of Dick Higgins´ performance at the Club of the Association of Hungarian Writers in Budapest, and of his visit at Artpool in 1993 is shown, as well as a video of an interview with Higgins about Fluxus (from the Video Archives of Artpool)
