2. January 2011: “Experience the glory of art in 40 minutes: license for lunatic balderdash” by UBERMORGEN.COM

UBERMORGEN.COM, a group of net.artists and media hackers based in Vienna and the World Wide Web, present a radiophonic mockery of contemporary art criticism and discourse, by revealing the emptiness behind words – without sparing themselves from this analytical joyride heading for the apocalypse.

9. January 2011: “Vapor Trails of Europe” by alien productions

Kunstradio’s contribution to the EBU Ars Acustica Euroradio Concert Series is a live radio performance by the artists group alien productions, recorded on 7th December 2010, at the ORF Funkhaus Vienna: condensates of European acoustic culture are transported into the orbit with the art satellite mur.sat.

16. January 2011: Art’s Birthday 2011 – Warm-up

Robert Filliou declared 17th January to be the Birthday of Art and suggested that artists celebrate this day in a Fete Permanente, creating an Eternal Network. On the eve of Art’s 1,000.048th Birthday, we take you on a warm up trip to worldwide partys and performances, listening to early birds’ chants and midnight serenades.

17. January 2011: Art’s Birthday 2011: “Viral Radio” – Live from the ORF Funkhaus, Vienna, Austria
on line:,
on site: ORF Funkhaus, Argentinierstrasse 30a, 1040 Vienna, Austria (No admission, starts at 20.00 CET).
on air: 23.03-01.00 CET on OE1.

Robert Filliou’s concept of the Eternal Network suggests a virtually self-perpetuating system generating art and ideas around the globe. In 2011, Kunstradio celebrates Art’s Birthday with a performance project referring to this thought: “Viral Radio” plays with mechanisms of viral diffusion, which have evolved with the rise of social platforms such as youtube or Facebook and which have been adopted by whizz salesmen for marketing purposes. However, it is certainly not a product we intend to spread, but: Art. And we
don’t even charge for it.

Brigitte Wilfing, a performer and choreographer, and Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, a composer and turntablist, have developed the project “Viral Radio” and present a range of activities and interactivities to celebrate the birthday of Art in its 1.000.048th recurrence according to Filliou’s feisty Fluxus calendar. Highlights of the evening include an interactive radio installation on site and on air, a performance lecture by Brigitte Wilfing, concerts by Kid 606, Pure, Martin Siewert, Ernesto Molinari, Thomas Wagensommerer, Magdalena Chowaniec, Peter Kozek, Jan Deck, Anne Grabs and others, and a screaming contest – whoever is angry, scared or just wants to break the silence: please contribute your loudest screams online at and become part of the party!

Viral Radio is a cooperation with subnet – platform for media art and culture, and the university project NeWAiR.
