Neoist art festival
seeking to totally break down the wall between artist
, artistic and non-artistic activity, etc. It consists of a group of Neoists (and their fans) holing up in an apartment
for week, living together, doing chores around the apartment, staging conferences
both inside and outside the apartment, partying, and so on. Video
records are often kept of these intreguing events.
It seems obvious to me that this kind of event could only take place in an apartment, or other living space: a hotel, or more conventional convention site would lessen the opportunities for social interaction (it's hard to put someone on the usual "artist" pedestal if you've helped them wash dishes)...What happens, apparently, is that each of the "performers" has a 2-3 hour period in which whatever they do is art, and is viewed as such. This opens up many, many possibilities...
