We will not take an aeroplane for the sake of 
art. For the next 6 months we will find other 
ways to visit and participate in exhibitions, 
fairs, conferences, meetings, residencies. We 
will not fly for inspiration, nor to appreciate, 
buy or sell art.
But only if 6 others will do the same AND replicate this pledge.

The website for Reduce Art Flights, a project by 
Gustav Metzger, recently went live with an 
introduction, mp3 interview and email list 
signup. It's a simple site with a broad goal: 
reducing the art world's ferocious surge of 
capitalism and subsequent use of airplane travel. 
The project was first realized at Sculpture 
Projects Münster in 2007 as a leaflet based on a 
WWII Royal Air Force poster that detailed the 
bombing of Germany.
