Tristan Tzara / Red Circled

Wissenschaft Wissenschaft Wissenschaft
And then Fluxus began to get copied. Fancy people began copying Fluxus things and ideas. But they tried to make fancy things out of them - and that changed them. When teacups were replaced by millions of teacups they weren't simple any more, so they stopped being Fluxus. That was always the difference: they stopped being art of life. You could always tell the real Fluxus thing from the fake ones because the real ones stayed simple, while the fake ones had fancy names attached to them.

Ay-O's Rainbow

Alison Knowles & Alan Bowman performing Ay-O's Rainbow at the Museo Fortuny, Venice, June 2006. Other performers were Jelena Arsenic and Cece (?) who unfortunately aren't on the photograph.

(That's a real pity because they are both infinitely nicer to look at than Bowman!)

and even more loose pages

EPF Fluxus Buck (altered)


Originally uploaded by ex posto facto.
As part of Dada at the MoMA week next week in NYC, the Sticker Dude sent me a costume enhancer kit...and asked for a photo. I'll send it to him, too, but I thought it might be of interest here, too.
