Abstract

This article discusses the work of 1960s Fluxus artist Wolf Vostell. Specifically in relation to the city of West Berlin in the form of the work Berlin: 100 Events. The paper analyses the relationship between art and city space and how the streets and places of the post-war city became contested and deeply symbolic. The 1960s saw a fundamental shift in how the new generation understood the world around them and the art of Vostell played a part in that development. Both the city and the younger generation were seeking a new identity and a new relationship to the world. The city spaces of West Berlin provided a catalyst for this recalibration.
