Eric Andersen

Eric Andersen has been a pioneer in the field of performance art, installation and InterMedia and was one of the founders of the Fluxus network in 1962. Since 1960 he has been participating in over 500 events and exhibitions all over the world. He developed an interest in intermedia art very early on (as from 1959). In his Opus works from the early 60s, he investigated primarily the open interaction between performer and audience. In November 1962, for the first time, he participated in a Fluxus concert at the Festum Fluxorum in the Nikolai Kirke, Copenhagen, and in subsequent years he was involved in a number of Fluxus festivals and actions. From 1962 to 1966, he cooperated closely with Arthur Köpcke. In the late 1960s, Andersen was active in Mail Art, and since the 1970s he has devoted much of his work to an investigation of geographical space.

For our Samtalekøkken, April 2013, he played the church organ as a part of his own retrospective solo-exhibition in Nikolaj Arthall
