Move For Life! with ArtParis 2011
Robert Rauschenberg , 2006,-®Littmann Kulturprojekte.


PARIS.- For the first time in its history, ArtParis is acting on the urban public scene with Move For Life, a mobile art intervention against poverty, aids, violence, racism and environmental destruction by Littmann Kulturprojekte (Basel).

The aim of Move For Life is to create a dialogue between art and the public through major societal issues… using lorries! These utility vehicles become giant billboards showing the works of artists throughout Europe in places where we least expect them, on more than 250,000 kilometres of roads.

As an engaged action, Move For Life is involving internationally renowned artists who produce socio-political works capable of speaking to each and every one of us. By raising questions and triggering reflection, these creations, which express active stands, allow for a direct confrontation between art and the public at large, outside the walls of museums and galleries.

And so, for the ArtParis event, starting on 1 March 2011, eight lorries covered with works by Ben Vautier, Daniele Buetti, Damien Deroubaix, Jochen Gerz, Isabel Muñoz, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Titchner, and Atelier Van Lieshout will crisscross England, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy.

On 30 March, 2011, at 10 AM these lorries will converge on the Grand Palais for the inauguration of ArtParis. Throughout the duration of the event, some of the lorries will remain parked in front of the Grand Palais, while others will drive around Paris for the benefit of Parisians at symbolic sites of the French capital. And starting on 4 April, the Move For Life lorries will resume their travels through Europe to reach more than 25 million spectators, be they art lovers or not…
