CLOSED // OPEN
Most museums in Belgium are close don Monday’s. Also MUHKA ( Museum for contemporary art of Antwerp ) is closed on a Monday. Exceptionally MUHKA opens it doors and reserve the full 2-nd floor for ARTS BIRTHDAY 2011.
A state of the union, a debate, performances and a party will happen. We promote the opening of all museums in the world on ARTS BIRTDHAY with free entrance for all visitors.
ARTS BIRTDHAY 2011 is a live mix as a soundscape of museum sounds and the repetitive reading of open / closing times from all over the world.
Recordings made in museums are welcome.
