Fifty years after 1968 the République Géniale – an idea of Robert Filliou’s – was rediscovered. During this time of change, Filliou, a French Fluxus artist, came up with a new concept of art and art training that did not focus on individual talent but on the genius natural to each of us. The Kunstmuseum too is going through a period of redefining itself and is therefore again proclaiming the République Géniale. It will continue on with Filliou’s approaches by means of a continually altering exhibition project involving art collectives, an interdisciplinary performative program, and reflective discussions on various relevant themes.
In conjunction with the exhibition we are issuing a digital publication (DE/EN; available online). There you will find weekly contributions, articles, interviews by and with those involved in the project during the duration of the exhibition.
