The website is alive!

The website is up! Over the next three weeks we will be releasing exciting videos and photography about the 28 works being presented at this year’s artFart. Keep on checking up on artFart business to be up to date with the lively schedule. The festival is upon us!


This year artFart has designed a ticket-clip card, which allows audience members to go and see more shows – for less! Each card has 10 clips and costs only 9000 ISK. For every show that usually costs 1200 ISK – you will only use one clip. For every show that usually costs 2200 ISK you will use 2 clips.

The result is a whole load of discount:

300 ISK saving from every 1200 ISK ticket, and 400 ISK saving from every 2200 ISK ticket.

Interview with Richard DeDomenici

Here in a PDF you can find an interview with performance activist Richard DeDomenici from the last issue of Total Theatre Magazine. DeDomenici will host a free workshop as part of the Reykjavík Public Space Programme from the 3rd – 5th of August.

DeDomenici’s work could be described as anarcho-surrealist interventions that examine deviance and the politics of public space.

RPSP Call-Out For Artists In Residence

Reykjavík Public Space Programme (RPSP) is a new part of artFart presenting site-specific works made for public space. Now RPSP calls out for artists/collaborators/collectives to man three, three week residencies  in August this year. This great opportunity will suit anyone interested in pursuing creative experimentation with live art in the public sphere. The selected artists will have access to a workspace, marketing, a fee and a trip to ANTI Festival in Kupio Finland.

Dancer Inga Maren Rúnarsdóttir has agreed to be the residencies’ coach but recently she has worked with choreographer Willi Dorner in ‘bodies in urban spaces’. Furthermore, she is fresh out of David Zambrano’s 50 days of flying low and passing through.

Application guidelines:

The residencies will take place in the three weeks from August 5 – 22nd.

Application is open for individual artists or collaborations based in Iceland.

RPSP supplies: Workspace, publicity, a coach dedicated to the residencies, a fee of ISK 75,000.- per residency (fee and budget), a trip to ANTI Festival (Flight and accommodation)

The RPSP 2010 programme offers three workshops lead by internationally renowned artists with a wide variety of approaches to working in public spaces, free of charge.

Each week residents will receive a rule set created especially for RPSP culminating in a presentation of a public art work performed in Reykjavík. These will then be documented in an online archive.

If you are interested, please supply the following:

  • Letter of motivation
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • 1-3 minute long performance video based on the following conventions:
  1. Think of Iceland
  2. To meet somebody
