An event on the spectre of dadaism and fluxus — the influence of anti-art in contemporary music.

“traitor, you left fluxus” was directed towards Nam June Paik, written on a postcard, signed by the inventor of the word “fluxus”. This witticism grasped aggressive and to the point the whole idea of a movement. Fluxus and dada were declared dead a while ago, a logic step for anti-art to abolish itself on the moment it becomes art — as a amorphous ‘trickster’ that disappears on the moment you can see him.

The spectre of dada and fluxus still haunts noise, free improv and performative avant-garde. The aesthetics of failure, the absurd, randomness, silence, absence or action as the core of music are everywhere in tapenoise, contemporary vocal poetry or avant-garde. A couple of decades later, they remain strong tools to persue freedom. Freedom… another ghost condemned to fail, but will appear in all its poetic beauty during a happening in extracity.
This bulk of interviews, artwork and more interconnects the artists performing on the “traitor, you left fluxus”-event.
