Total Art. Environments, Happenings, and Performance

Since WWII artists have made increasing use of technological media, and, in their search for new art forms, have collaborated with filmmakers, dancers, actors, musicians, and other artists, to stage controversial, often outrageous and hilarious, seemingly spontaneous public gatherings. Happenings, first seen in New York in the early ’60s, use live performers without the logical structure of drama, in an attempt to break down the customary distinctions between life and art.
