Instruction Lab is a new interactive workshop where participants can witness and reconstruct conceptual, instruction-based pieces by artists—including George Brecht, Alison Knowles, and Ben Vautier—who were integral to the international Fluxus movement of the 1960s and 1970s. By engaging directly with original Fluxus scores and performances, the lab aims to re-create the innovative spirit of this important avant-garde movement.

  • This installation is part of The People’s Studio.
