This blog documents everything (of interest) that I discover in the art section of my old university library. My other blog is here: mailartmanchester.tumblr.com Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fluxus; Thomas Kellein, Thames and Hudson, 1995.
I guess the problem with Fluxus for some people is that it was so event/performative orientated - deliberately ephemeral - and has subsequently been hard to document. It’s also evaded being tied down by art historians to any definitive ‘narrative’ given how sprawled and contradictory it seemed, a little like Dada. This book has lots of good pictures which tell you enough really, without having to read the essays. And I never tire of looking at photos of performances, of which there are plenty.
