A Fine copy of this paperback edition. Perhaps the most radical and experimental art movement of the 1960s, Fluxus aimed to dismantle the barriers between art and its public through works that celebrated humor, chance and the ephemera of everyday life. Among the artists who convened under its banner were Joseph Beuys, Robert Filliou, Alison Knowles, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, George Brecht and Ben Vautier (to name only a few). Their activities blended film, performance, language, objects, printed matter and music in a new “intermedia” (Dick Higgins' term) that played a major role in the development of performance art and Conceptual art. This major document provides the first comprehensive overview of Fluxus. Illustrated with more than 300 reproductions (many previously unpublished), as well as an important selection of artists' writings and documents, the book features seven groundbreaking essays by renowned scholars that explore the Fluxus movement in its various incarnations across a variety of media. Published by the Walker Art Center in conjunction with its major traveling exhibition, the book is an essential research source and includes a detailed bibliography and index.
