What is Fluxus?!

Reading – Homework for next week

Georege Maciunas, Manifesto on Art/Fluxus Art-Amusement

Compare and contrast this to the Kaprow and other Happening work we have discussed.

Look at Cage’s Water Walk – http://youtu.be/SSulycqZH-U and Lucier’s Music for Solo Performer – http://youtu.be/bIPU2ynqy2Y

Consider each of their uses of technology and how each changes how we might see performance. How does this relate to Maciunas’ writing?
