YOU TOOL-SHEDS !!!!!
No month-long victory party/festival/insane-getaway would be complete without all of you losers to taste our wine of triumph with us! Post-Neos from across the Americas and Europe will shout-break-poeticize-eat-do-laugh-show-see-tell-share-exorcize-perambulate-behold-salivate-drink-prognosticate-film-filch-stomp-orate-write-smoke-hurl-paint-ignite-play-impregnate-slather-cook-sleep-dialogue, and be generally merry! For the first-time, Post-Neos known to each other only through rumour, myth, and publications will be confronted by the sublime splendour of each others' corporeal existence.
For one month--JUNE 2008--the New Jersey Post-Neo HQ will become an exquisitely absurd hostel/itnA-gallery/perform-a-drome/thieves' den/cinematec/guild-house/speakeasy open to all anti-comers! It will be fucking grand!
Still interested? Holy shit! Keep reading, chumps, for even less absurd transliteration:
In the tradition of the Neoist Apartment Festivals, the various events of the anti-festival will be organised in and around our shared living space in New Brunswick, NJ. In keeping with the DIY strategies characteristic of much Post-Neo activity, we have not sought sponsorship from governmental or corporate-funded bodies; in order to foster an environment of sustained communal exchange, we are eager to offer you our home, though unfortunately we cannot provide transportation. Guests can participate for as much or as little of the time as they are able to afford and/or can get away. The schedule of the festival will develop gradually as we work out with our guests when they will be able to come. The event will be shaped as much by the condition of sleeping, eating, and working together as by what, individually, each of us shares.
For those of you traveling (or potentially traveling) internationally, we will put together some more detailed information to help you out ASAP.
This festival will bring together an international and a local community, to act as a flashpoint for future collaboration. All participants, whether visiting or from the local area, will take an active role in exploring the way in which an international and a local community can interact and intersect. The anti-festival is being held in a community where a number of us heavily involved with Post-Neo live and work, New Brunswick, New Jersey. New Brunswick is home to a network of extra-institutional creative communities that are particularly self-aware. This consciousness is articulated through an ingrained tradition of house and basement shows, street actions, and interventions stretching back at least to the flurry of Fluxus activity here 40 years ago. These strategies are maintained through a culture of enthusiastic collaboration and uninhibited participation, often resulting in events and manifestations which occur for themselves alone, simultaneously created and observed by everyone present. These qualities are as essential to this local community as to the international Post-Neo community, but differently articulated; the anti-festival will exemplify the threading together of these strategic and tactical registers.
During the build-up to the anti-festival this blog will be the main forum for planning and communication among everyone involved. The entire Post-Neo community is invited to participate in this planning through this blog. Whether or not you can make it out to New Jersey, you're encouraged to post to the blog to participate in planning, foster collaborations, share work and ideas, and generally get to know each other better before the event itself. Those of us hosting the festival will regularly update the blog to keep everyone informed about planning and scheduling as it develops.
During the festival, the blog can serve as a way for those who have left, have yet to come, or who can't be here in person to remain involved in what is developing. Over the course of the festival, we will keep the blog constantly updated with photos, documents, descriptions, and other communiques; those of you following the blog from afar can participate by offering us images, texts, or pieces for us to perform. Everything posted to the blog will be archived.
