Description "Fluxus" is an enigma. Can it be called an art movement? Or does it defy categorization? Associated with artists such as Joseph Beuys and George Brecht," Fluxus" was founded in 1961 by George Maciunas, a New York design student who was involved with the group until his death in 1978. It represented the work of a group of young artists, writers and composers involved in a wide range of mixed-media events including concerts, performances, exhibitions and other "gatherings". The group is associated with a form of anti-art encompassing everything from photography and pavemment art to poetry and drama, and is known for its own range of products. This book presents a selection of "Fluxus' memorabilia - posters, sculptures and boxes, puzzles and games - that set out to capture the essence of the group's ideology, as well as photographs of some of the key events that took place, including the exhibitions of Yoko Ono and the performance of Nam June Paik. An introduction focuses on the aims and ambitions of the "chairman" of the group, George Maciunas.
