The Harvard Art Museums recently acquired 72 artworks, including prints, multiples, audiovisual works, sculptures, and performance ephemera, by German artist Wolf Vostell (1932–1998). A founder of the international artist group Fluxus and a pioneer of the art of Happenings in the 1960s, Vostell was one of the first artists to incorporate television into artworks. In this seminar, curatorial fellow Kyle Stephan will closely examine a selection of these works, focusing on the artist’s multifaceted concept of “dé-coll/age,” which defined his provocative intermedia art practice.


Led by:

Kyle Stephan, Nam June Paik Curatorial Fellow, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art


The seminar will take place in the Art Study Center, on Level 4.

Free admission, but registration is required. Registration for this seminar will open on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at this link, and participants will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
