Ongoing collaboration between Brazilian artist Ricardo Palmieri and Croat Kruno Jošt will be presented in cultural centre SESC in Curitiba, Brazil.
CultureRobot is invited for participation in the Circuito Vivo arte.mov 2012 between 07 to 12 May 2012 in Curitiba, Parana, Brazil. Typical micro-festival is occupying the spaces of the SESC Palace of Freedom (SESC Paço da Liberdade). Program ranges from a set of audiovisual shows, forum involving researchers and artists to workshops on mapping and geo-location and participative installation. The idea of the festival is to expand access to discussions and critical use of technologies, such as mobile media, the microcinemas, the mediation technologies, network policies and art in public space.
Circuit arte.mov Live is a project that has existed since the first edition of the festival (started in 2006). Created initially as a mechanism for dissemination of the activities, Circuit today has become a standalone event, a special edition that has a priority to establish prospective artists and researchers in the localities where it occurs. In 2012 Circuit Live arte.mov is taking place in five Brazilian cities: Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Goiania, Curitiba and Sao Paulo.
Collaboration of Brazilian and Croatian artists on particpative isntallation CultureRobot has started in 2008 and since has been presented on HAIP festival in Ljubljana, SESC San Jose dos Campos, Brazil, Futuresonic Fringe, Manchester and arte.mov Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

During opening session of Dorkbot Rio a team of deconstructionalists have performed once again. This time a ‘Fusca’ (popular Beetle or Volkswagen) produced in 1968 was carved down on 24th May 2008, 40 years after it was produced and 40 years after counterculture and those revolutionary days which are so much evoked in the Brazilian media today, due to older rich people remembering them as the ‘days when they were driving Beetles with the flowers in their hair’.
Dorkbot Rio was hosted by Circo Voador, famous club in the heart of Rio da Janeiro. Production unit were: Bruno Tarin, Bruno Vianna, Giuliano Bonorandi and Kruno Jost. Thousands of thanx to many others that helped and worked with us making video or photographic documentation we can all enjoy now. Thanx again to all people that came for the event and joined in at the end in the manner that I have encountered only with people from Brasil.
Kruno JoÅ¡t (CRO) presented sonic live session at OIDARADIO in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Friday 09/05/08 at 16h. OIDARADIO is a temporary net radio station that is hosted by the institution PaÃ§o Das Artes for one month period. During this period an international group show brings together artists, experimental musicians, critics, curators and DJs to explore all areas of experimental/artistic sonic activity.
OIDARADIO, a project curated by Nick Graham-Smith and Kiki Mazzzucchelli , will streams live for 4 hours a day for 24 days (Mon-Fri, 6th – 30th May, 14-18h), which is a first exhibition of it’s kind in Brazil. After the month of radio shows that could be listened on-line and at the PaÃ§o Das Artes gallery, the exhibition will remain as a website with permanent archive of the event.
This year’s MMKamp is all about the free travelling radio (or Putujuci Slobodni Radio) and our first stop was at the iSummit in Dubrovnik.
We set up the radio station, interviewed some iCommoners, set up an art performance about the value of money and free culture and had lot’s of fun at a radio party!
On sunday the Birds of a Feather session was held about structuring further Brazilian <-> Croatian free culture exchange. Only two people from the summit showed up, but we also had a couple of brazilians on-line (valeu cris e machado). With renewed ideas we think that this exchange is only going to get better!
Glerm Soares made a score with famous lirics of Croatian 20th century poet Tin UjeviÄ‡: “We know, o we know that alcohol is bad, but give us Rakija because there is no relif in water” (Znamo, o znamo, Znamo da alkohol Å¡kodi, No rakije, rakije, rakije amo, Jer utjehe nema u vodi).
The existence of two words with same sonority but different spelling in brazilian-portuguese: concerto-conserto, became the metaphor for the discussion of this two meanings putted in the same layer. In portuguese “Concerto” means musical ritual and “Conserto” means “to fix” something.
Something is beeing lost since industrial “revolution” tossed us into a dimension where “technology” is generelly understood just as “devices” for “progress”.
Mankind has developed amazing skills in search for new languages. Computer Languages are something like Musical or Poetic languages. “Open Source” is a metaphor of a better approach for exchange cultural specificities that makes each individual a unique part of our universe.
