Fluxus and the essential questions of life.


April 16-August 7

Curated by Jacquelynn Baas

How to present Fluxus in a museum context has always been a problem. The movement was animated by performances and ephemeral transactions, manifestos and publications. And Fluxus objects were meant to be picked up and handled, not simply looked at. Perhaps to dislodge the notoriously slippery movement from conventional scholarly and critical rubrics, "Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life" focuses on the experiential and pedagogical. One hundred twenty objects, including Fluxus kits, scores, and games, will be organized around a series of questions such as "Change?" "Danger?" "Freedom?" and "What Am I?" The catalogue, presented like a Fluxus self-help book, includes essays by Baas, Ken Friedman, Hannah Higgins, and Jacob Proctor.
