Normally, travel agencies are outlets of a world-wide working romanticism industry. On offer: standardised places of longing with which potential buyers are courted by the tourist trade. FLUX-tours, in contrast to that, is a ambulant, stationary and virtual travel agency, made by tourists for tourists! Equipped with mobile art rooms and action rooms, a team of artists travels to places in which longings come into being and straight away escape from: an estate of prefabricated houses, a deserted industrial area or a gap site. This is where FLUX-tours comes in and creates romantic counter images to join in or keep up. Visitors of the stationary travel agency as well as those following from home, can join in via internet. The team of FLUX-tours likes to think of romanticism as an encouragement to encounter reality attentively, creatively, and imaginatively, to go through visionary potential for change. Art is seen as a step towards taking action and opposing the influence of external interests and stencilled images. FLUX-tours takes the “Revolution of the Romantics“ to the street : “Why don’t we do it in the road?“ (Lennon-McCartney) since “The beach lies under the paving.“ FLUXUS= art for life, art for all.

FLUX-tours in an art-project by the Caspar-David-Friedrich Institute of the University of Greifswald; responsibles: Prof. Ulrich Puritz and Marcus Schramm with the co-operation of Martha Damus, Marcus Oesterreich und Christine Schmerse. FLUX-tours co-operates with the Staatliches Museum Schwerin and is sponsored by NORDMETALL-Stiftung.
