Flux film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dating from the sixties (1962-1970) and compiled by George Maciunas (37 out of 41), founder of Fluxus, the fluxfilm anthology is a document consisting of 41 short films ranging from 10 seconds to 10 minutes in length. Elements of ephemeral environments, these films, some of which were meant to be screened as continuous loops, were shown as part of the events and happenings of the New York avant-garde. They celebrate the ephemeral humor of the Fluxus movement. Starting in the early sixties, Fluxus followed in the footsteps of the Futurist and Dada avant-gardes, going against the established grain of Fine Art and Official Art. Fluxus ̀as interdisciplinary aesthetic brings together influences as diverse as Zen, Science and daily life, and puts them to poetic use. Initially received as little more than an international network of pranksters, the playful artists of Fluxus were, and remain, a network of radical visionaries who sought to reconcile art with life
