The 1,000,043rd Birthday of Art (English Version)
"It all started a 17th of January 1,000,000 years ago. A man took a dry sponge and dropped it into a bucket full of water. Who that man was is not important. He's dead, but art is alive." With these words, fluxus artist Robert Filliou founded and celebrated Art's Birthday in 1963. Until his death in 1987, he regularly celebrated the event himself. Later on, artists, musicians and performers from all around the world took over and every year formed a gigantic birthday network.
