Al Hansen's Car Bibbe II was a text penned in 1968, as a successor to his pre-Fluxus happening, Car Bibbe (the "car symphony" in which participants enacted various gestures with cars from Brechtian scores).
This virtual "Happening" is an interpretation of an original, unrealized Al Hansen text presented by Second Front member Bibbe Hansen. Car Bibbe II, unlike the Car Symphony #1, is a cycle of three actions; demolition of a Cadillac Fleetwood, scores of ballet dancers, and a horde of maintenance engineers. The original Hansen text is presented in its entirety, live in the virtual world of Second Life, previously unrealized due to liability issues.
The score gas been performed three times:
at artcontainer.ee in Talinn,Estonia )Dec. 2008)
Around the Coyote Festival Chicago, (Dec 2008)
Bridge Art Fair 2009, NYC
