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.

The 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 (a. o.) Joseph Beuys, George Brecht, Philipp Corner, Robert Fillou, Geoffrey Hendricks, Dick Higgins, Joe Jones, Milan Knizak, Alison Knowles, George Maciunas, Nam June Paik, Ben Patterson, Takako Saito, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell and Emmett Williams
