Cousin PIA is in Linz and has visit already some of her relatives, like Georg Steiner (who wasn´t here today, but the Cousins Barbara, Claudia and Patrizia have been at the office), Erich Watzl, Julius Stieber and our musician in the family Hubert Igelsböck.
Jürgen O. Olbrich startet his 24 hour give away performance punctually at 0:00 in the Berlin festival base Kunstfabrik am Flutgraben. He has been chief of the Paper Police for more than 20 years, during which time he’s collected all possible and impossible sorts of „paper“. Exchange Radical Moments! is just the right moment for Olbrich to scatter parts of his collection in a 24-hour potlatch. In conjunction with this public giveaway/performance, the Paper Police are packing their inventory into convenient packets and handing them out. It’s not permitted to open them on the spot; actually, they should be retined in their original packaging if circumstances permit.
Come and pick up an individual PAPER POLICE parcel!
From 9 to 11.11.2011
Berlin (DE) – Grid Square F7 location on map
Go to LIVE STREAMS and archived broadcasts
Over the course of three days, performer Sybille Ettengruber paces off the perimeter of grid square F7 on her map of Berlin—a four-kilometer hike in the real world. In doing so, she’ll be crossing over public lands and private real estate, traipsing through apartments and gardens. To be able to overcome obstacles, her luggage will include a ladder. The stroll will be filmed and photographed.
The very first broadcast on http://11moments.org is an interview with Scott Burnham, made with Bambuser broadcaster and Bambuser chat. Burnham speaks about his long-term festival project The Urban Guide of Alternate Use. This project is still open to vote for the winner of the GO11 Award.

UpStage Festival – Interacting with online audiences
The 12 cyberformances (live online performances) featured in the 11:11:11 UpStage Festival offer a variety of opportunities for online audience interaction. In all UpStage shows, audiences interact with the artists and other audience members through the text chat; this is often a very lively space, generating a fascinating commentary that can be at times profound
or hilarious. Cyberformance redefines the relationship between performer and spectator in a number of ways, and the shows presented at the UpStage festival explore many possibilities.
Many shows are specifically devised with audience interaction in mind; for example, at past UpStage festivals audiences have been invited to follow clickable clues to solve a murder, create animated mandalas by drawing on the stage, trigger sounds, answer questions and contribute stories; this year’s
festival is no different.
It is the 5th UpStage festival and the performances are all about 20 minutes long, with a show starting every half hour; so it’s very easy for audiences to participate, and there is no log-in required for audiences, just click on the link to the stage.

To encourage and celebrate resourcefulness in the city, EXCHANGE RADICAL MOMENTS! Live Art Festival is awarding a prize for the most innovative re-use of an urban object or area for a new purpose.
From telephone boxes being re-used as tree planters to street signs being used as musical instruments, the urban landscape is no longer the end of a creative process, but the beginning. The city has become source material and urban residents around the world are finding new uses for the existing infrastructure of their city.
An appointment is made between a performer and a spectator: a certain time and place, nothing more. When they meet a rule is set. The performer: “I am going to take you by the hand and ask you to close your eyes.” The couple viewer/performer starts their walk.
The performer chooses a focal point and turns the spectator’s head in the right direction so he can perceive it. Aiming the spectator’s head, the performer says ‘open‘.
The opening time corresponds to the opening of a camera diaphragm: long enough ‘for the picture to be taken’ “Open, close” will be the only words spoken during the walk.
Through this mechanism, everything which enters the field of vision creates an event: it appears to the eyes as for the first time. The discontinuity gives each image the sudden strangeness of a flash. The space is made alive for the eyes.
The performer, who is now a guide, must create a relationship of mutual sensitivity so that the viewer can abandon himself ‘into his eyes ’ and accept to be disoriented. The guide’s hands put him in a state of dance. His perception of all his inside movements is highlighted: he dances.
It is a duet who is in process through the eye walk: two bodies commit to one another in a simultaneous walk, ‘just to see’.
The eye walk becomes a singular way to create a movie out of reality, a movie in which the viewer participates with all his senses involved.
(Myriam Lefkowitz, Paris)
„When it gets hard to distinguish between
life and performance, I would say that it´s the beginning of reality.“

Duration: approx. 2 hours (or determined by each group)
Our time is dominated by material goals, which, once reached, exhaust themselves soon. Nevertheless, we spend most of our life in pursuit of them anyway. At the end, what becomes of true luxury is not to possess the latest IPhone from yesterday, but to have five minutes to meet people.
With a map and a riddle in hand, you are ready to go. Further instructions can be found everywhere. You just have to meet the right people or get to the right places. But how do they look like? How can I recognise them, when I meet them? Does the man in black have the instruction for me? Is the picture at the photo booth some kind of sign? Can the nursing home be the place? You can only come up with questions, once you hit the road.
Luxury Neukölln? The absent hero leads the way!
