Biography   Al Earl (Alfred) Hansen


Alfred Earl "Al" Hansen (5 October 1927 - 22 June 1995) was a Norwegian-American artist considered as one of the most important Fluxus* figures. He was a Norwegian American.

Born in New York City, he was a member of the Fluxus art movement and friend to Yoko Ono and John Cage. While serving in Germany in World War II, Hansen pushed a piano off the roof of a five story building. This act became the foundation of one of his most recognized performance* pieces, the Yoko Ono Piano Drop and inspired artists such as Nam June Paik.
