A bit of background info: Wikipedia defines “fluxus” as a movement which is still going on today, though it should be seen as an “attitude”, rather than in the historical context in which most people might think of an “art movement”. Today, we still perform historical scores (such as George Brecht’s “water music”) and often wear bowler hats and dress in black for group performance purposes, as we have great respect for the original bowler hatted members who created scores with the idea that they could be re-performed by ANYONE, and would take on a new life depending on the new performer’s interpretation and performance circumstances. The word “Fluxus” is a name taken from a Latin word meaning “flow, flux” (noun); “flowing, fluid” (adj.). But also, ANYONE with understanding of the fluxus attitude can create brief or durational scores and perform or publish them with or without an audience, anytime, in any place, and via any media.
