GEORGE F. MACIUNAS, Diagram of Historical Development of Fluxus
George Maciunas was an influential Lithunian artist, designer and publisher. He is credited as the founder and figurehead of the Fluxus movement, a network of artists, composers and performers working 'in and in-between' the fields of music, theatre and art in the '60s and '70s. Here his Diagram of Historical Development of Fluxus and Other 4 Dimentional, Aural, Optic, Olfactory, Epithelial and Tactile Art Forms (first published in 1979 in the Swedish magazine Kaleidoskop), is reproduced as a poster and sleeve along with its two original accompanying essays by Mats B. The diagram outlines the movement from 1961 through to 1973 while situating it within a wider cultural and art historical spectrum, while the essays (one in English, one in Swedish) summarise the movement.
