On FLUXUS’ fiftieth birthday, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart will present a selection from the archive of this legendary art of the 1960s and 1970s.
FLUXUS was initiated in the 1960s by visual artists, musicians and scientists who radically rejected common notions of art. The absurd performances, bizarre objects and humorous ‘events’ created by the protagonists have found their ways into the museums. On show will be artworks by the chief exponents of FLUXUS which belong to the Hanns Sohm Archive. In the possession of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart since 1981, this archive houses one of the most important FLUXUS collections worldwide.
