Art‘s Birthday

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.
Find your preferred work of art.
Make a 5 minute recording from the fixed position in front of it
