Exchange Radical Moments is a Europe-wide Live Art Festival. The festival’s mission is to make breaks into the daily routine by curating live art projects which engage in everyday life and interrupt the usual routine.
Expanding over a timeframe of one and a half years, a variety of Live Art projects will be created and put into action in 11 European cities, by more than 30 participating international artists.
The practice of Live Art is to be traced and located by way of its intersections and overlapping with Performance Art, Visual Art, Theater, and everyday life.
Exchange Radical Moments! Live Art Festival´s day is 11.11.11. On this day, all festival projects will take place across the European continent, simultaneously.
What is being exchanged?
- Ideas and projects dedicated to the (re-)activation, the inventive (and resourceful) handling of public space
- Experiences from sub-cultures, counter-cultures, from the social outbound (-cast) districts, the margins of society
- Questions that characterize the urban utopia
- And “radical moments” that take place in and between encounters; moments that have a certain magical impact on the involved peoples

About the Festival Producer, Die Fabrikanten:
Without making any difference between applied and free artistic work, Die Fabrikanten work as a communication office and at the same time carry out art projects – demanding to create a social surplus value.
The intellectual approaches of Die Fabrikanten come from art, science and economy. Extraordinary perspectives develop thanks to the combination of new links between these fields and they manifest themselves in experimental atmospheres, corporate designs, situations and communication concepts.
