Details

Starting in the early sixties, Fluxus followed in the footsteps of the Futurist and Dada avant-gardes, going against the established grain of Fine Art and Official Art. In Fluxus an interdisciplinary aesthetic brings together influences as diverse as Zen, Science and daily life, and puts them to poetic use. Initially received as little more than an international network of pranksters, the playful artists of Fluxus were, and remain, a network of radical visionaries who sought to reconcile art with life. Dating from the sixties and compiled by George Maciunas (1931-1978, founder of Fluxus), the Fluxfilm Anthology is a document consisting of 37 short films ranging from 10 seconds to 10 minutes in length. Elements of ephemeral environments, these films, some of which were meant to be screened as continuous loops, were shown as part of the events and happenings of the New York avant-garde. Made by the artists listed above, they celebrate the ephemeral humor of the Fluxus movement. This series of 37 films, which Gerorge Maciunas began gathering as early as 1966, was compiled by Jonas Mekas at New Yorks's Anthology Film Archives in 1992. Though some films are still missing, it is the most complete version to date since Maciunas' death in 1978. This DVD contains: 37 films by: Nam June Paik, Dick Higgins, George Maciunas, Chieko Shiomi, John Cavanaugh, James Riddle, Yoko Ono, George Brecht, Robert Watts, Pieter Vanderbiek, Joe Jones, Eric Anderson, Jeff Perkins, Wolf Vostell, Albert Fine, George Landow, Paul Sharits, John Cale, Peter Kennedy, Mike Parr, Ben Vautier.
