The sister form of the Exquisite Corpse is the Event, so every week we will be offering an event challenge. Events are the haiku of performance art. Your job is to create a video based on a score supplied by the event artist of the week. Make a video, request a link by email (exqisitecorpsefestival at gmail) to submit your to our dropbox, and be entered to win a free ticket to the festival. (Just one, but but you can win every week!)
Here’s this week’s challenge:
“Moving Theater” by Nam June Paik (circa 1964)
A fleet of cars and trucks drive into a crowded city at rush hour. At the appointed time, all drivers stop cars, turn off engines, get out of cars, lock doors, take keys and walk away.
And this week’s small print:
- BE SAFE AND DON’T BREAK ANY LAWS! The Exquisite Corpse is not responsible for any danger (physical or legal) you put yourself or anyone else in to make your submission.
- All submissions become property of the Exquisite Corpse Festival and by submitting you also agree to have the video screened at the Festival (whether or not you are this week’s winner).
- Winner receives a voucher for one pass to the 2010 Exquisite Corpse Festival. (No, we’re not being cheap; we’re encouraging you to play again next [and every] week. There’s no limit to how many weeks you can win, so keep submitting and you can win every week!)
- Deadline for this week’s challenge is noon on Saturday, December 4, 2010.
