It was also there that he met the Fluxus Art Movement, a libertarian movement characterized by a mixture of different arts, originally in the visual arts and later also in music and literature.

Ernst Föll witnessed this artistic manifestation, as his teacher and another group of artists had a thought beyond borders.
