Today, this happening is regarded as the height of the Fluxus movement in Germany and an important turning point for the group. For 24 hours, performances took place in every room of the Gründerzeit villa, headquarters of the Galerie Parnass. Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik, Wolf Vostell, Bazon Brock, Charlotte Moorman, Eckart Rahn, and Tomas Schmit began their performances at midnight. This happening was to be the last large event held by Galerie Parnass. Shortly thereafter, Rolf Jährling, the gallery owner, ended his gallery career and relocated to Africa. Book ID: 50078
