WHAT IS FLUXUS?
An international and interdisciplinary group of artists, composers, designers and poets that took shape the 1960s. It valued simplicity and anti-commercialism, with chance and accident playing a big part in the creation of works, and humor also being an important element.
WHAT IS DADA?
An artistic and literary movement which began in Zürich, Switzerland, and arose as a reaction to World War I. “For us, art is not an end in itself,” wrote Dada poet Hugo Ball, “but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.”
WHAT IS DAY DE DADA?
NYC fluxus based, dada inspired performance art collective producing events that include experimental & interactive performance art, installations, video, film, music and noise
