La nit del 20 d’octubre caixaforum barcelona farà un homenatge al mític ambient que es vivia a the factory, i convidarà artistes i músics a participar en un esdeveniment que vol anar més enllà de l’entreteniment per erigir-se com un agitador cultural de la ciutat.
de la mà del primavera sound els artistes mark cunningham & arnau sala, dj fra (nitsa traxx) i dj alicia carrera (hivern discs) seran les propostes musicals de la vetllada.
dos artistes de referència de l’agènciao com mau morgó i filip custic dirigiran i realitzaran diferents accions performàtiques en directe.
el públic assistent es convertirà en part de l’obra d’art seguint la màxima de warhol: «en el futur, tothom serà famós mundialment durant 15 minuts»

they did a $5000 custom outfit for miles with gold musical notes on it and everything, and they didn’t do a thing for me, they were so mean. they could’ve made me a gold palette or something. so i looked like the poor step child.and in the end they even(laughs) told me i walked to slow…
