What is Fluxus? Fluxus was launched in 1962 as an interdisciplinary, neo-avant-garde artist collective, whose organized activities were spearheaded by the Lithuanian-American artist and designer George Maciunas. The group was primarily active in the United States, Germany, France, and Japan through the 1970s, although some would argue that Fluxus is still alive today.

While Fluxus has acquired the reputation of being an unrepresentable or undefinable art movement, similar to how Dada and Surrealism were once perceived, that reputation may simply indicate that we haven’t yet arrived at a satisfying framework for understanding what Fluxus artists were up to. A prevailing myth has it that Fluxus was anti-art, anti-object, and promoted chaotic experimentation with no order or logic. The reality was that Fluxus artists had utopian ambitions, and their unusual tactics were part of a coherent strategy. Rather than eliminating art, they sought to dissolve its boundaries in order to infuse everyday life with heightened aesthetic awareness and appreciation.

 Fluxus artists looked for value in the commonplace, believing that art can be anywhere and belong to anyone.
