Fluxus, the first international, transmedia art movement this century, is recalled in this special edition by a number of original members: Emmett Williams; John Cage, Rene Block, Jackson MacLow, Nam June Paik; Robert Fillou. Fluxus took the art world by storm in the early 60s and its spirit is still relevant today. Stemming mainly from Joseph Beuys and John Cage, the movement believed in the performing arts where inspiration could be drawn from the spiritual responses of the audience and where stimulation and change were the only constants. The group worked predominantly in the US and Germany, though their shows travelled extensively. This is an essential read with a mixture of articles, interviews and letters.
