In the present exhibition [Allan Kaprow: An Exhibition, Hansa Gallery, New York] we do not come to look at things. We simply enter, are surrounded, and become part of what surrounds us, passively, or actively according to our talents for "engagement", in much the same way that we have moved out of the totality of the street or our home where we also played a part.

Allan Kaprow, fra "Notes on the Creation of a Total Art" (1958)
