Le plat en creux by Ben Vautier
Created in 1995
Edition of 034/1000
Ben Vautier was described as 100% Fluxman by George Maciunas, self-appointed founder of the Fluxus movement, which was considered by many to be the most radical and experimental art movement of the 1960s. Intentionally positioning themselves outside mainstream art and art institutions, Fluxus artists created their own venues for performances, exhibitions, and sale of their work. Vautier—often referred to simply as Ben—played a central role in the early evolution of the Fluxus movement and was one of its most active international participants.
