Fluxus-Namensliste

About this artwork

Fluxus was an international group of artists and musicians. Taken from the Latin word 'to flow', the group's name reflected the belief that there should be no boundaries between art movements, or art and everyday life, letting creativity be unrestricted. Beuys was connected with the group for a time in the early 1960s, when Fluxus activities were at their height. The lower part of this work is a list of names of Fluxus collaborators, most of whom had musical links. It includes the German music critic Heinz-Klaus Metzger, German composer Dieter Schnebel, Canadian composer Pierre Mercure, American composer Terry Jennings, Dutch composer Konrad Boehmer and Japanese composer Yuji Takahashi.
