Kullaberg HopArt jump

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Yesterday the latest jump in the non-stop eternal HopArt Tour was carried out in Parishamn near Kullaberg Lighthouse.

HopArt Tour-start 2014

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Flash-back freeze-point! From this years first HopArt-jump, on Earth Hour, in the first days of April (I can tell you it’s a bit chilli in the waters in Sweden that time of year…). But when the Minister goes to work, there is no turning back – even if he tries to… The jump was performed in Eslöv in a little lake nearby the town center (Trollsjön).

The 34:th jump on the so far 12 year long HopArt World Tour.

 

1:st jump Hopart Tour 2014

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

First jump of the season is already done. It was the earliest jump so far on the HopArt Tour. The HopArt jump was carried out on Earth Day to be part of the towns manifesation. It was also a bit chilly in the water, but not too bad. After all the Minister always wear a suit which keeps him warm(er).  The media was covering the event pretty good. The big regional paper was there to eternalize the jump.

HopArt flashback

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Perhaps you’ve noticed the HopArt Tour to Norrbotten this summer! If not here’s a little flashback from one of the more northern jumps. This was in Råne Älv (Råne River). If you like to follow the jumps in the five biggest rivers in Norrbotten you can check out the “HopArt Galleries“.

PRESS RELEASE HopArt in LONDON – PoliNation: 2nd International Conference on Micronations

This weekend the Ministry of Art will attend the 2nd International Micro nation Conference at Chelsea Old Town Hall in London, July 14-15. The Minister of Art & Jump Fredrik Axwik will represent Ladonia (www.ladonia.com) as a delegate together with the Queen, Carolyn I. The Minister will, amongst others, perform the Ladonia National Anthem since he will perform a HopArt Jump in London. As this is written the place is not set yet. Perhaps in the neighborhood of Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Parks Serpentine Lake or such, since everybody that I’ve consulted has strongly recommended against jumping into The Thames…

I skrivande stund är platsen ännu inte spikad. Ev. i närheten av Serpentine Gallery i Hyde Parks Serpentine Lake eller nåt liknande, eftersom alla har avrått mig å det livligaste angående att hoppa i Themsen…

Hopp i Skånskan

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Gårdagens invigningshopp på Hållbarhetsveckan i Eslöv fanns med i Skånskan. Man kan läsa den lilla artikeln här.

Men oj, bara 20 i publiken? Det var nog lite snålt räknat av tidningen (eller så har dom skrivit fel – som vanligt). 😉 Fullt var det ju visserligen inte i A-hallen den kvällen, men jag skulle tippa på uppåt 60-70 i publiken. Hade en rätt bra utsikt över publiken från talar-stolen. Och när sedan vindkraftsdebatten satte igång lite senare på aftonen var det nog över 100 som samlats… (Bara för att sätta saker o ting i perspektiv). :)

Om man undrar över pappret som mannen i bakgrunden håller upp så var det en lista med grundläggande problem för ett Hållbart samhälle som Ministern listade på ett blädderblock under invigningstalet:
– Pencillinet
– Industrialismen
– Elström
– Sekulariseringen
– Vår stora hjärna
– Förstånd/ insikt (Vi är sluga, men inte lika smarta)
– Vår bekvämlighet
– Kvartalsrapporter

Återstår bara att lösa dom problemen, men utan att hamna på Medeltids-nivå igen helst kanske…
