s23x becomes s23k – We need 23.000 SEK in donations to take the bus back to Stockholm for the pirate bay trail.
Just over a month left until the The Pirate Bay trial spectacle. ( 16 / 2 – 2009 ) To make it extra fun and really establish a kopimistiskt spirit around the trial, we need a Piracy base. We need to get our bus currently parked in Belgrade and we are taking it to Stockholm. It requires a sum of money, more than we have, but not more than what goes to rattle. So, dear readers, donate here
While the file-sharing spectacle rages on in Sweden, this summer, the Bureau of Piracy together with Teh Piraet Bey looks to the rest of the world and embarks on a journey that will take them throughout Europe with final destination the mountainsides of Bolzano, Italy and the Manifesta art biennial.
The Bureau will continue what started with the walpurgis ritual last year, with a re-examination party in the Italian mountains and the presentation of a new statement based on their recent experiences from the Scandinavian copyfight. The party will be open for you all and the whole project will be documented and shared with everyone. You know who we are.
Manifesta art biennale is held to be one of the most innovative art events of its kind and is highly respected within the contemporary art community. Their invitation of The Bureau of Piracy to Manifesta will expose the artworld to the fascinating KOPIMI way of life.
For more information go to the . Please do. And please, if you’re on the road where we’re going, honk if you see our bus, say hello if you see us, and give us your mix tapes if you still have them. And if not, make some new and give them to us.
This is a video from the modification of the s23m. The old city bus that will take us to Italy this summer for the Manifesta 7 art biennial.
We have a bus! We start to renovate it.
This is a s23m photo set from Altemark. Summer of love and hate.
TPB is not just a website. TPB is not just a file sharing network. TPB is not just a movement. TPB is also art. TPB is a performance. It’s a long running art project. Very long.
TPB was initiated by Piratbyrån – The Bureau for Piracy. Read the activity report for year 2007 to understand more about their work.
TPB and PB are the best of friends. That’s why we’re making more art together – but now we need your help! This summer we want to travel by bus from Sweden to Bolzano in Italy, where we have been invited to contribute to one of the world’s leading art events, Manifesta.
Step one is to actually get the bus! So please help out – go to our site by clicking here and read more about this summers performance!
