Celebrating the 50th birthday of the Fluxus art movement, the Museum Wiesbaden pays tribute to the 1962 „Piano Activities“, a legendary concert in which a grand piano was played in such an unconventional way that in the end it was completely destroyed.
In 2012 the interactive installation „Piano Interactivities“ revives the famous performance. This time online users from all over the wold can control several destructive instruments from the internet to play an ungentle concert on a real piano placed in the Wiesbaden Museum. By creating their own little score, they can remotely trigger a hatchet, hammer or saw and so become a Fluxus artist for 30 seconds.
Please note that the installation is no longer in service.
