Riassunto: "Fluxus" is an enigma. Can it be called an art movement? Or does it defy categorization? Associated with artists such as Joseph Beus 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.
From Library Journal:
This magazine-sized volume on the nature of the group Fluxus, termed a "catalog," contains two essays by recognized experts and 189 selected works illustrating 145 international neo-Dada intermedia objects, boxes, editions, artistic happenings, and musical performances orchestrated by Fluxus's founding father, George Maciunas. From his 1961 founding of the group until his death in 1978, Maciunas conceived of this variable international association as a drastic alternative to crass, materialistic "high art" and the fame afforded egocentric artists. Everybody was declared his or her own artist, and works were developed and disseminated through exhibitions, publications, mass-produced objects, "products," paper or boxed editions of cheap Fluxus items, photos, and films. Ironically, perhaps, many widely recognized artists did emerge from Fluxus (e.g., Yoko Ono, John Lennon, Nam June Paik), but none could match the "complex genius" of organizer Maciunas, who was "driven by a utopian vision of a new art and a new society." Recommended for larger contemporary art collections, especially for the bibliography.?Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Towson State Univ., Md.
