  • Fluxus is a term that George Maciunas used to describe a tendency among a group of artists in the early 1960s. They were influenced by Duchamp and John Cage, incorporating chance into their creations. Fluxus was multi-media, spanning performance, objects, and film. It has been considered an attitude and way of life that erases boundaries between life and art. At the end of his life in 1978, George Maciunas described Fluxus as a form of low art amusement, a mixture of zen, vaudeville, and Spike Jones. This interview is in The Fluxus Reader, ed. Ken Friedman.
