EULA League is an extension of the conceptual art project NÆON FLUXUS.1
EULA League focuses on the æsthetics and performance of language via a year-long working group that considers and acts on texts that shape or describe American life.
Through weekly performances, readings, and discussions to generate understanding of critical texts as ‘user guides’ and by taking corresponding action in light of those understandings, EULA League confronts feelings of civic powerlessness with the hope of subverting them.
EULA League is open to participants of all ages as well as to interested observers and is hosted weekly for 60 minutes in community or public spaces.
Selected ‘EULA’ texts are worked in a sequence of four open meetings:2
- First Meeting – Read/Analyze the Text;
- Second Meeting – Discuss the Text with an ‘Expert’;
- Third Meeting – Question and Investigate the Text;
- Fourth Meeting – Take Action in Light of the Text.

- NÆON FLUXUS is a pseudo-bureaucracy that uses classes, forms, spreadsheets, meetings, pamphlets, instructional videos, and other tools of bureaucracy to reclaim time and space for personal and civic engagement. ↩︎
- Participants and observers can attend without participation in previous or commitment to subsequent meetings. ↩︎
