buchloh on robert watts

to be embedded in reficiation and to return to it with a sense of
compensatory suspension is one way to describe certain fluxus and happening
activities as well. one articulation occurs in the game or the gag, and the
ludic principal would now be proposed as the only access to a ritual of
transgression. another is the happening model of social participation which
never transcends anything but the totality of inertia and
instrumentalization that determine everybody's everyday life..."
