No Geographical Boundaries – Dada Transformation

September 22, 2012

We can change and transform small things.  We can change, transform and mail pieces of art. We can change, transform, mail and skype live art. We can gather at Deep Tanks and Fluxfest NYC in person, through art books, rubber stamps, live art performances, gatherings,  postings online and with skype.  There are no geographical barriers with Fluxus.  Our goal is to erase the boundaries between art and life.
