Opened in May 1969, in Antwerp, A 379089 was an anti-museum and anti-gallery devoted to films and happenings. The idea of such an alternative space was launched by the Belgian film-maker Jef Cornelis at the house of the collector Hubert Peters, its name uses the letter A for alternative and 379089 because it was the Peters's phone number. Isy Frizsman, another important collector, would pay the rent, Kasper König would coordinate projects with Cornelis, and artists like Broodthaers, Panamarenko, Carl Andre, La Monte Young and Jörg Immendorf would contibute. Panamrenko, after some problems in the association and a disagreement betweeen him and K. Koenig, took the direction and, as reads the text, closed the the A 37 90 89 where he installed his airship, the Aeromodeller.
