 Yoko Ono

b 1933 Yoko Ono received her first degree in philosophy from Tokyo‘s Gakushin University, and went on to study philosophy and music at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She married John Lennon in 1969, working with him in various musical, artistic, and political projects. As an artist, poet, performer, and composer she was also involved in the beginnings of the Fluxus movement in the 1960s. Her art used to include the viewer as an active participant and ceased to distinguish itself deliberately from everyday life.
