Non-Events

An event is a thing that happens or takes place, one of importance, a fact of something occurring, an item in a programme.

A Non-Event is an event in which the viewer/audience participates in and concludes the artwork/s without their knowledge of the event/artworks being done.

Rules and Restrictions


To publicise or promote a Non-Event would therefore make it an event.

To organise a time or place of a Non-Events would therefore make it an event.

To discuss a Non-Event before the event would therefore make it and event.

To Acknowledge a Non-Event would therefore make it an event.

A Non-Event need not have ownership.

A Non-Event may be a large or small social interaction.

Documentation of Non-Events exist only within the viewers/audiences’ memory and imagination.

Communication and discussion of this participation allows the work to continue to exist.

Credit for Non-Events may be given incorrectly as authorship is not declared.

Essentially a Non-Event exists as a rumour.

Non-Events did take place and are still happening.

Nothing comes from nothing.
