In 1950s and 1960s
Beuys and Nam June Paik were connected by “Fluxus”
However, the connotation of “Fluxus”
Is often incomprehensible due to its liquidity.
This Saturday, HOW Art Museum will invite the artist group R吉B
to explain “Fluxus” in the form of artistic talk show
so as to help you understand those obscure artistic works easily
Fluxus from now on!
About the Event
The pursuit of “novelty” and “rebellion” by contemporary art has resulted in a lot of obscure works; “Fluxus”, an artistic organization which opposes to everything but can not be classified into any category, is harder to accept for the public.
Although Fluxus opposes to the professionalization tendency of art and advocates creating simpler, more practicable, common and lively art, it involves complicated character relations (and the creations of these artists have widely different personal styles) and various aggressive on-site behaviors, which render Fluxus both mysterious and unpredictable.
Beuys and Nam June Paik were connected by “Fluxus” and both of them are important representatives of Fluxus. Therefore, it is necessary to know and understand Fluxus if you want to comprehend the current exhibition of HOW Art Museum “Letters Du Voyant: Joseph Beuys x Nam June Paik”.
What did Beuys and Nam June Paik experience?
What pioneering work did they do?
Did the prediction they deduce come true?
What does Fluxus have to do with me?
The answer will be given at the artistic talk show this Saturday
This is Fluxus!!
