Description

George Maciunas was the founding member and leader of Fluxus - the most radical and experimental art movement of the 1960's. Members rejected the traditional systems of high art, practising an extraordinary form of anti-art which encompassed everything from photography and pavement art to poetry and drama. Maciunas was both clown and serious revolutionary, ruling the `non-movement' Fluxus autocratically, yet poking fun at himself as he did so. What emerges from this collection of impressions and anecdotes is an informative portrait that is, by turns, funny, shocking, tragic, yet often hilarious. Friends, enemies and former Fluxus colleagues have contributed to this memoir of a man who saw it as his mission to change the world, starting with the world of art.
