Abstract

Can time be performed? Departing from the “processualist” view in which time is the expressive activity of any given thing, being, or phenomenon, the processes of pervasive temporalization and musicalization—characteristic of Fluxus intermedia—converge to produce concrete, lived time and perpetuate the dialectical interplay of continuity and discontinuity.
