‘‘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
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.’’
