Peter van Beveren and Harry Ruhé invited Fluxus artists to participate in a Fluxus Festival at the AKI Art Academy in Enschede in The Netherlands. Participating artists were Eric Andersen, Giuseppe Chiari, Dick Higgins, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Bob Lens, Wim T. Schippers, Takako Saito, Ludwig Gosewitz, Milan Knizak and Mischa Mengelberg. The director Sipke Huismans of the AKI gave carte blanche to the two curators. Van Beveren and Ruhé managed nine artists to come over for five days to this Fluxus event, namely Eric Andersen, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Bob Lens, Wim T. Schippers, Takako Saito, Ludwig Gosewitz, Milan Knizak and Mischa Mengelberg. Every artist got a fee of Dfl. 3.000,- (“It is about time that artists should be properly paid…’). In the end the AKI almost went bankrupt caused by the high bills of hotel, dinner and free booze, trip and traveling costs.
