The famous "Boulevardkartongen Tvångs-Blandaren", from 1955, was edited by the student periodical "Blandaren", and among the editors a young Pontus Hultén, from 1960 head of the Modern Museum of Art in Stockholm. This item had a seminal influence on George Maciunas and the so-called "Fluxus boxes". He used this box-issue as a model for his different kits.
