FLUXUS AT 50

The first ever Fluxus performance took place 50 years ago as part of the International Fluxus Festival of the Newest Music at the Museum Wiesbaden. Now this key moment is being revived here. Within the framework of the jubilee festival, FLUXUS AT 50 aims to reconstruct and reappraise this performance, musical and artistic movement. This catalogue presents Fluxus stories, motifs and methods using objects, musical scores and images from that period. Reworking the original festivals led to the exposure of a lot of myths, but it still didn’t detract from the fascination of the Fluxus idea in itself, which back then spread out from Wiesbaden to change the world Artists Alison Knowles, Ben Patterson, Ben Vautier, Dick Higgins, Emmett Williams, Geoffrey Hendricks, George Brecht, George Maciunas, Joe Jones, Joseph Beuys, Milan Knizak, Nam June Paik, Philipp Corner, Robert Fillou, Takako Saito, Wolf Vostell
