THE BIKE BLOCK FINDS THE PERFECT PLACE !

Dear friends who have been working to find us space in Copenhagen, there is great news, we have somewhere and it is so much nicer than the grey church of contemporary art !! Between the 5th-19th of December we will be based in an  abandoned petrol station taken over  by a great crew of artist, Free International Tankstelle (http://www.f-i-t.org/) it's  at Farumgade 4-6, Nørrebro, Kopenhagen. What is extraordinary, is that they already have 100 bikes for us to use! Which is a good start (although we will probably need more and there are people from cultura 21 who have offered to help with this already which is great.) 

So, we will reclaim the autonomy of art within the old ruins of last century's empire of  fossil fuels..a perfect place to build and launch a bike bloc. As for the Nikolaj centre for contemporary art, we should just remember  Martin Luther Kings poignant words  "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."  Thank you for being friends who walk the talk. Thanks for all the help and contacts you have been sending and lets keep in touch and prepare to put the fun between our legs..

See you in Bristol or/and copenhagen ?
