It Never Ends – Flux Boxes and Intermedial Objects
Homage to George Maciunas and Dick Higgins
In the 60s and 70s, a host of figures from within the Fluxus galaxy, under the impetus of the artist George Maciunas, produced Flux Boxes: this limited series contained all kinds of objects - miniature works, musical scores, poems, etc. and were sold at low prices thus fulfilling the goal of rendering art that was meant to be democratic and internationalist accessible to all. For this exhibition, John M Armleder has brought together about 15 of these works, which he presents in a unique scenography and juxtaposed to a historical work that he produced, during their Ecart collective in collaboration with Patrick Luchini, by way of a tribute to Dick Higgins, the Fluxus artist and inventor of the “intermedia” concept.
