    Yoko Ono is a woman who is most commonly known as the woman who married the Beetles’ star John Lennon. In the article by Arthur C. Danto titled “Life in Fluxus”, Danto goes into detail about Ono’s art style, how she met and influenced her husband, and the amazing and shocking art she and her husband produced. Danto never outright defines what Fluxus means, but rather lets the reader learn the definition through Ono’s work. Similarly, Ono would often let the viewers of her art participate and come up with their own interpretations of her “instructions”. Fluxus is a type of art that can be left to interpretation which was in style at the time of Ono’s most prominent work. Ono would often leave a set of instructions for the onlookers to either…

    He is a multimedia artist and painter. He creates imaginary environments in which paintings, sculpture, drawing, video, and found objects commingle. I see similarities with Althoff and the Fluxus movement. Althoff is taking his traditional art such as his painting and approaching the way they are displayed in many ways. He is creating an environment for the viewer or the everyday ordinary person. Althoff’s work also takes influence from Dadaism in his use of found or ready-made objects.…

    He also invented a computer program and a do-it-yourself kit for crafting paintings in the Op Art style. These actions closely relate to Fluxus, a movement that students of Art History 1 learn a lot about. These do-it-yourself ideas from Vasarely are hardly different from the artist of Fluxus in the way that they not only wanted to make art available to everyone, but have them produce art as well. He came to view his pieces as an original kind of modern design that could save the world from '…

    Fluxus art acted as more of active works than reflective and passive, as fluxus artists often aimed to change the world and history, not the art world. As such, the works would rely on the audience’s involvement to shape the meaning, reflecting back to Vostell’s theory that “art is life - life is art.” Through his strong connection to the world around him and his understanding of how events affected society, Wolf Vostell created experience oriented works that created unique experiences and…

    Performance Art has been a active sector of art in the past century. The origins of this kind of art started in the mid-1950s and has only grown larger. The movement of visual art to a more conceptual, somatic experience was most prominent with the rise of Happenings and the Fluxus movement. Art, as demonstrated by these movements was more than an experience separate from the viewer, but instead a holistic experience that included both mind and body. These movements allowed more interaction…

    Going so far, in one instance, as to create a picket line at the premiere of German composer, Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Originale on Sept. 8th, 1964. This particular event was very divisive within the Fluxus movement and called into question the allegiance of many of the artist who crossed the line (wikipedia.com/Fluxus).

    Typically, as with a lot of Fluxus, Dada or abstract art, destruction is about a message, political, ideological or otherwise promoting the counter-consumerist ethos, or critiquing society on flaws such as over valuing inanimate objects, as stated earlier in this paper. Arguably though, there is a more spiritual side to destruction also. As referenced in the ‘Analysis’ section of this paper, a performance such as Piano Burning enables an artist to give an old, tired instrument a fantastic final…
