Fluxus - from the Latin, meaning 'to flow' - was a radical, international network of artists, composers, and designers in the 1960s and 1970s noted for blurring the boundaries between what we term 'art' and what makes up everyday life. Following the work of American Fluxus founder George Maciunus, "Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life" presents a variety of objects that express the Fluxus mission, while empowering readers to challenge the presumptions we bring to the concept and practice of art making. Based on a large-scale traveling exhibition first organized at Dartmouth College's Hood Museum of Art, this book chronicles the movement in the form of an art self-help book, playfully providing answers to fourteen key questions such as 'Art - what is it good for?' and 'What am I?' via Fluxus works. Featuring extensive color illustrations, accompanied by essays from curator Jacquelynn Baas, Fluxus scholars Hannah Higgins and Jacob Proctor, and Fluxus artist Ken Friedman, this book will make an original contribution to our understanding of this provocative moment in modern art.
