…the festival is over now! The Public Art Lab team says thanks to all of you…we will leave Montreal by tomorrow morning.
Please post your e-mail adresses and links on this community site so people can get in touch. You can upload anything that is connected with you and your work on your “project” section of the wiki.
The site will be active as long as people post on it. The moment it quiets down we will disable the posting functions and turn the site into a public accessible archive. We have enjoyed this project very much and learned a lot from it.
Thanks a lot Kyd and everybody of the HTMlles team who made it possible for us to come to Montreal.
Let’s stay in touch! All our best,
Ela, Stéphanie and David

Today, there have been a number of talks at Monument National. Among them the presentation of Kayle Brandon of the “Border Xing” project as well as the “Tour de Fence” which she does together with Heath Bunting. I have already written a couple of things about this project here.
Then there was the presentation of the “Women with Kitchen Appliances” who perform an ironic circuit-bending style. They do workshops and live performances where they turn kitchen technologies like blenders or egg whisks into music instruments. But they also create funny table-fireworks by stabbing knives into blenders during operation - wow, that’s a cool effect. The kitchen women also performed during the closing event tonight and that was just fantastic! Look at the video here.
In the afternoon we had a talk about international cooperation in the cultural field and we presented several projects and networks like champ libre or the Upgrade! International Network. We touched upon many interesting aspects, such as the status of cultural organisations, ways of cooperations or the burnout of cultural workers. It was an open exchange and we kept on coming back to the fact that cultural operators need to establish a functioning network of collaborators and multiplicators in order to run their projects in a sustainable way.
I appreciated the exchange of experiences and I thought it might be an interesting for one of the next Upgrade! meetings back in Berlin to invite different organisers of cultural events to share their thoughts.
We all enjoyed the closing event at the Metropolis, with the music of Analog Tara, DJ Cyan, Freida Abtan and AGF (check the video here) from Berlin…and we say a big THANK YOU to the whole organisation team of the HTMlles 8. We had a good week here in Montreal and got to know many great people and their projects. And we hope that this community site will be in use also after the festival has come to a close.
Women with Kitchen Appliances, un collectif de femmes - 3 à 6 - identiques (elles ont le même costume, la même perruque) et de ce fait interchangeables. Elles font de la musique, un concert à partir de votre cuisine… une installation, une intervention dans votre cuisine !
Women with Kitchen Appliances est le nom générique, une entité, qui englobe à la fois le projet sonore, la performance et le groupe de musique, le nom du collectif…
Ce soir Women with Kitchen Appliances sera à la soirée de clôture du festival HTMlles 8 au Savoy - Métropolis.
I think this project is of high interest for everybody - not only those who are directly affected by fences and / or borders in their lives. The longer you think about this project the more it becomes clear that most of our societies have an increasing tendency to exclude people, projects or opinions which are not conform with state policy. And this limits the mobility & freedom of all of us!
Border xing and the Tour de Fence project are a reminder to be aware of what is happening in the world around us…
