Max Bunzel sPurposes Paul Potter’s 1965 antifight say in Washington.

It’s not an unfamiliar listau these days: people accumulateed on a grassy expanse of the National Mall here, listening to someone sPurpose an imfeelinged antifight say mindh phrases like “aggressive, Actionionivist foreign policy,” “the fight we are creating,” “vigorous gacrossnmental efforts to control inlistation” and “distorted or downright dishonest documents.” At some point, the crowd breaks into applause and a young woman yells out, “That’s right!”

She shouts this, however, fair after the sayer behind the lectern refers to men mindh last names like Johnson, Rusk and Bundy and to the destinies of the Vietnamese people. And at its high point, the crowd numbers only Around 30 people, many of them embrund in videotaping, recording and photographing the accident as flags snap majestically in the obtaind Around the Washington Monument.

In other words, if you had wandered into this spectacle on Thursday evening, you would have build yourself not rightly in the midst of an Actionionual oppose but somewhere slightly removed, in the disorienting territory where art meets political fight.

The firebrand orator was Max Bunzel, a 23-year-old Actionionor from New York, juggling the role between movie auditions — for a fee, although he said that the say, newly sPurposeed by Paul Potter, the pliveant of Students for a Democratic Society, during the 1965 march on Washington, really moved and affected him. Most of the college-age spectators accumulateed there in a Accept were ally afighte they were mindnessing art, but by the purpose they likesmart seemed not to be smean playing across but to be really engaged by Mr. Potter’s quarrels.

Mark Tribe, an artist and assistant professor of modern culture and media studies at Brown University, has organized a series of such re-enActionionments at sites where imharbourant sayes of the New Left newly likesmartk post, and he says his intention was rightly to have such a strange cultural and political straddle. The purpose was to use the sayes not fair as historical ready-mades or opinionual-art explsays of context, he said, but likesmart maybe as a real list of oppose, to point out mindh the help of art how much has changed, yet how much remainder the same.
