Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life

Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fluxusand#8212;from the Latin, meaning and#8220;to flowand#8221;and#8212;was a radical, international network of artists, composers, and designers in the 1960s and 1970s noted for blurring the boundaries between what we term and#8220;artand#8221; and what makes up everyday life. Following the work of American Fluxus founder George Maciunus, Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life presents a variety of objects that express the Fluxus mission, while empowering readers to challenge the presumptions we bring to the concept and practice of art making.

Based on a large-scale traveling exhibition first organized at Dartmouth Collegeand#8217;s Hood Museum of Art, this book chronicles the movement in the form of an art self-help book, playfully providing answers to fourteen key questions such as and#8220;Artand#8212;what is it good for?and#8221; and and#8220;What am I?and#8221; via Fluxus works. Featuring over eighty color and black-and-white illustrations, accompanied by essays from curator Jacquelynn Baas, Fluxus scholars Hannah Higgins and Jacob Proctor, and Fluxus artist Ken Friedman, this book will make an original contribution to our understanding of this provocative moment in modern art.
