The Nationalgalerie presents Fluids. A Happening by Allan Kaprow, 1967/2015 – a comprehensive reinvention of Allan Kaprow’s Happenings from 1967 in the public sphere. Kaprow (1927-2006) was a pioneer of performance art. His work Fluids, originally constructed out of ice blocks, explored questions of authorship, participation and communality, temporality, and choreography. Social processes as well as ways of occupying public spaces are thereby challenged. The Nationalgalerie has invited Berlin-based artists to create their own contemporary responses to Allan Kaprow’s happening. Their versions of Fluids appeared in different locations around Berlin on successive days during the Berlin Art Week 2015.
