Benjamin Buchloh, in his essay on Watts, addresses the relation between advanced forms of fetishization in consumer culture and the artistic responses given by Watts and his Fluxus colleagues. Judith Rodenbeck's essay, a close reading of textual and photographic aspects of Kaprow's production, provides a new model for approaching happenings and event structures and their relation to contemporaneous art. Robert E. Haywood examines postwar artistic production and Kaprow's work in relation to the critique of capital. Also included are an inteview with the two artists by Sidney Simon and one with Watts by Larry Miller.
