D.A.F.T. Related events & participants: THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL in Trollhättan

Fred Lindberg started THE (deviant) ART FESTIVAL as a society and network of contemporary artists in London 2005. The thought behind these art events was to put people and ideas together rather than single pieces of art. To create a foundation for collaborations. In 1937 Hitler exhibited “Entartete Kunst”, 1962 came Fluxus events like “The Festival of Misfits” and today our Art is striving to exist in-between being singled out as a degenerate, or choosing to be a misfit.

The Round Chapel and Art:

Maybe some of you happened to catch the prior exhibition by Anthony McCall at the “chapel”. His piece was a sculptural light installation consisting of two 12-metres-high-pyramid-like projected forms. The piece is called “BETWEEN YOU AND I”.

Due to the recent big interest and possible growth of the (deviant) ART festival there might be a shortage of beds in the cottage village next to the gallery where most of the participants will be living. This means that the first people to hand in and get their proposals approved to be in the show, will be the first people to secure a bed space in a cottage. Late comers might have to arrange their own living. (We will help of course, but it WILL be more expensive.)

Klick on this picture below, save it, print it, cut it up... and hand it out! Another option is of course that you make your own flyer (if you are a participant of the Nausea show) and hand that out instead. Just spread the word!

How the gallery looks?

(deviant) ART festival and the NAUSEA show hits the Swedish newspapers?

Just the other day the two exhibitions where written about in the Swedish media for the second time. We have also been in contact with many of the mayor newspapers and they seem really interested to cover the events. (Here is a link to one of the articles: http://www.magazinespecial.se/artiklar/reportage/060322/lindberg/index.asp only available in Swedish.)
