HUGO KAAGMAN  STENCIL KING
1976 Happening "Vive les étudiants!" on the Dam square, Amsterdam as an enscenated situation.
VIVE LES ÉTUDIANTS ! This intended Happening started as a performance by hired demonstrators in 1976. Inspired by FLUXUS an advertisment was placed in cultural youth magazine Plug to hire people for f 25,- to demonstrate. These people were used to be activists. For 25 guilders - 11 Euro, at that time more than a train-ticket.  Because of the apathy at the University of Amsterdam, student  Kaagman left the place with a statement of art; a created situation, a strange protest: demonstrate for your self !!!! See to manipulate, ironic hype for the fucking student as a  loser, a doubter, a wijfelaar. What is demonstrating worth? 25 Dutch Florins, guilders guilders, gold. Buy Protest!
