From august 16 to august 23 2009 the second edition of the KLEBNIKOV CARNAVAL will take place.
The KLEBNIKOV CARNAVAL is a participative festival organized by Grapes of Art, De Bereklauw and myself.
During 8 days we let the spirit of free lyricism take over at the Evenementenweide in the Proviciaal Domein in Kessel-Lo, the self-proclaimed Center of the Known Universe.
This is a five year project, the last edition will take place in august 2012.
We do this without any financing, it just happens.
Because we need it.
We, that’s all of us. everyone doing creative work is hereby invited to be either fysically present or send in their works.
This is basically a literary thing, inspired by the great poet Velimir Chlebnikov, but anyone reading this will understand that our aspirations are larger then any restriction laid down by commerce on the free exercise of creativity.
You can send in works of any kind, we will do our best to let them live, show them in the best of conditions.
Because it’s you that are making this happen, we just open the gate for eight days.
Please specify the exact manner in which you want your digital files printed, read, enacted or shown. executing just that is our job, the rest is up to you. we would prefer to have you all present here, but we understand the cost of travel.
Your participation will be rewarded by our hospitality (we guarantee free lodgings and food for everone participating) and a growing international renown.
Any material objects will be kept in the KLEBNIKOV CARNAVAL archives, a so-called perdotheque, that will be shown entirely on each consequent edition and find a permanent location after 2012.
Please send your material objects with specifications to:
