The Guerrilla Art Action Group founded by Jon Hendricks and Jean Toche in 1969 is best known for anti-war performances at art institutions like the Museum of Modern Art. GAAG (pun undoubtedly intended) was part of a movement that fused art with instigating social change. The group can be linked to Joseph Beuys, Art Workers Coalition, and to the much later Guerrilla Girls, all broadly part of the Fluxus art movement. These ten “licenses” to “Kill,” “Burn Books,“ “Pollute,” and more were issued to art critic Edit DeAk. Similar sets were sent to others in the Fluxus orbit.
