As you may already know the pink aliens finally decided to make earth their permanent home. The visas and work permits are still a bit of a problem but the “silver cube” found a permanent residence in the south of France where three dedicated guardians will make sure that it stays accessible to future generations of scientists and the general public. If you would like to look behind the scenes you can watch our exclusive video report. We would also like to sincerely thank Energetika Ljubljana for their support of this excellent mission.
The Streetwalker returns to its birthplace! In the past four years, we have opened “ready-made” galleries in France, Austria, Great Britain, the Netherlands, South Korea and even in Maribor. Now we finally found time to make a proper “Duchampisation” on the streets where the idea was first tested in 2010.
Preparations are in full swing and the doors will officially open on Friday, 13. 6. at 19:00 at the Square of the French Revolution. We will also have guided tours on 14.6. (11:00), 15.6. (19:00) during the Museum night on the 21.6. (18:00 & 20:00), and as part of the Ana Desetnica Festival on 3.7. (17:00 & 19:30) and 4. 7. (17:00 & 18:30).
In addition to all the above we will also welcome individual tours between 13.6. and 5.7. – handy maps that will guide you through the installation will be available at the entrance 24h per day.
In short, pull out your calendars, choose a date and see you there!
P. S. As is traditional the entrance fee is 0 € (students and seniors receive a 50 % discount)
We successfully finished our EVS project Street Hero.
We thank all who made the project possible, especially our volunteer Tomasz Foltyn, our partner organization STRIM from Poland and Institute Movit!
The Ljuds are already busy preparing for a new season of “streetwalking” and discovering that the ready-made principle can really be used almost anywhere. (see video below;)

You are invited to see, to hear, to touch and to taste each or all of them!
The Ljuds have spent the last couple of months preparing for the coming season, working on Ljuds laboratory and artisticaly supporting the “zombilisation” of over 20.000 Slovenian citizens (who are demonstrating for preserving social rights and against growing political corruption). You can have a look at a gallery of our “Protestival” activities or read more about the current situation in Slovenia here.
P.S. We have also started to translate the Ljud page into French. Oh là là!
