‘‘Lying Down Ceremony:

Everybody is lying on the floor with a kerchief on their eyes. 

For a long time.

Tuesday, December 17, 1968, at 7:00 pm

Old Gym, Douglass College, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ

Wanted:

BIG, EMPTY ROOM (HALL, LOFT)… Not cold because people will lie on the floor.

PARTICIPANTS, MORE IS BETTER!

Everybody who wants to participate must do everything that is wanted (like a church).

THE ROOM: The Old Gym

THE PARTICIPANTS: You

This is what Milan Knížák, a Czechoslovakian artist and leading figure in the avant garde has called for a happening that he will do at Douglass College this Tuesday, December 17, 1968, at 7:00 pm. It is for participants only and those who want to take part should be at the Old Gym at 7:00 pm.

The performance will be followed by a talk on experimental art in the United States and in Czechoslovakia by Mr. Knížák at 9:00 pm also in the Old Gym and open to everyone.’’
