“Happenings in the NY Scene” Allan Kaprow, 1961

[Week 5] “Happenings in the NY Scene” by Allan Kaprow discuss the boundaries of an art happening. InĀ  the 70s many artist pushed the performative art limits in a area where theatre was the only approved art-form. Duchamp has long before been able to extend the limits of sculpture to readymades, and the happening idea tries to open up the frontier to include collective, not necessarily scripted or very organized events. Kasprow’s Happening definitions is really open-ended and renders such event intangible out of theyre original context. It’s impossible to reproduce the same happening two times, and therefore set different dynamics in the art market.
