Summer Happenings: Social Shaman

@ The Broad Date: July 28th, 2018

Time

8 p.m. to midnight

Co-presented by Goethe-Institut, this evening is inspired by the creative practice of German artist Joseph Beuys and the Fluxus movement he fostered. Legendary Krautrock group faUSt dazzles with experimental sets, and Baltimore duo Matmos — who recently composed an album by playing a washing machine on a stage — performs in the Plaza and throughout the museum. EYE presents a politically timely DJ set. Pharmakon deconstructs and manipulates sound into a spiritual journey. Total Freedom offers a disruptive, cross-genre set as evocative as it is danceable. FlucT investigates the physical, political and emotional through a new performance created especially for the evening. Nelson Patton joins forces with Lonnie Holley for a shamanistic improvisational set.
