EVENTS IN 1996
Art on the Internet
From January 1996 Internet access is provided free of charge during the opening hours to artists and researchers. Continuously updated selection of bookmarks of the most interesting art home pages facilitate the research.
23 - 25 April 1996 - Segment/Porte: Paris-Venice-Budapest-Skopje
Vitae is an interactive art event consisting of segment-events that
take place simultaneously in different places, interconnected by post,
telephone, fax and internet. Some nodal locations will have pre-planned
ambient installations as the starting point. These installations will
use material from past events as a base for the new one.
Your action will transform the situation, enlarging it beyond the starting installation and creating other events elsewhere. A net of material-virtual relations will thus be formed, generating an energy which enable us to sense the direction of the process of change, leading us to actions which will give an irrational, natural sense to the form of event.

In August 1996 two artists from Budapest, Gábor Györfi and Csaba Nemes went for a three month working period to Rotterdam where they worked on a common website related to Dutch bikes and windows. Two artists from Rotterdam came to work in Budapest: Graziella Tomasi spreads tulipbulbs in Budapest and Hanneke Breuker makes `portraits': of the city and of people living in Budapest. The presentation of the first outcomes of these works on the common website was at Artpool.

Fluxus Videos at Artpool
on the occasion of the exhibition "Fluxus in Germany from 1962-1994" at the Palace of Art of Budapest
In addition to displaying the original works of Fluxus artists, part of the exhibition is the presentation of the documentation of important festivals, concerts and artists that have been introduced in Germany over the last thirty years. Beside the works that were created in the early years of concerts and group performances, the exhibition shows the continued work of artists working in Germany. Thirty of the most prominent figures of the Fluxus phenomenon, who among others include: Joseph Beuys, John Cage, George Maciunas and Nam June Paik, have more than three hundred of their original pieces - objects, graphics and musical scores - exhibited. The original text and photo documents are supported by rarely shown Fluxus films, radio plays, taped readings, recordings, and excerpts from concerts will be presented to the public during the exhibition in the Palace of Art. An exhibition catalogue in German and a collection of texts in Hungarian will be published to accompany the exhibition.
