FLUXUS CODEX

description

"Fluxus Codex is an indispensable study of Fluxus product (non-performance works), compiled by Jon Hendricks, the recognized authority in the field and curator of the Gilbert and Lila Silverman Fluxus Collection, the pre-eminent collection of its kind. Here for the first time, a research team systematically tackles the question, "what is a Fluxus work?" using extensive correspondence by George Maciunas - architect and primary organizer of the movement - to a number of Fluxus artists, as well as original documents and all known Fluxus publications. Fluxus Codex traces the development of every Fluxus work, planned or made, from the beginning to Maciunas' death in 1978. This publication is, in effect, a catalogue raisonné of Fluxus." -- publisher's statement. Text by Robert Pincus-Witten and Jon Hendricks. Includes index. Catalogue gives complete list of all Fluxus editions. Over 800 illustrations, of which 68 plates are in full-color.
