OKNO will participate to the celebration of Art's Aniversary 2006, this in memoriam to 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....

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.

The previous years mxHz.org experimented with a series of connected
concerts, installations, workshops and lectures about 2-way-radio systems.
The ideas are as historical and reflected in the works of avant-la-lettre
media artists like john cage, as they are contemporary with the current
exaggerated podcasting and internet streaming... more

If something taught Dada to us it was the doubt ("duda", in Spanish), the distrust of all dogmatism, convention or unique imposed thought; by that is not strange to us that they got to refuse themselves affirming that the authentic DADA is ANTI-DADA, because even their same attitude it could become dogma, as the museums already made... more
