BEN TÉR

Open air show of French Fluxus artist Ben Vautier.
The basic idea of the exhibition came from the common practice used by Fluxus such as word-collage (Maciunas) and letter-change (Ray Johnson): BEN(BEM) vauTiER. Since the title referred to the square /square in Hungarian: tér/ there were signs with clever citations on them high up on the lamp posts
The technical curiosity of the exhibit was that the signs were designed on computer and enlarged by copy machine except the one Ben wrote himself and put on the podium. (more)
