In a manageable format that combines photographic sources with strong textual content, this overview of Fluxus defines and explores one of the most elusive artistic movements of the second half of the 20th century. Tracing the movement's development from its inception in the late 1950s and early 1960s in Europe and the United States to its heyday in the 1980s, the book discusses the diverse facets of Fluxus and its emphasis on the spheres of action and poetic, linguistic, and objective renovation, as well as on the role of the artist in an increasingly prosperous society that questions the practice of art as social criticism. Students and those interested in the latest trends in contemporary art will consider this a unique resource. "En un formato manejable que combina fuentes fotograficas con un contenido textual autorizado, esta perspectiva general de Fluxus define y explora uno de los movimientos artisticos mas escurridizos de la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Siguiendo el desarrollo del movimiento desde su nacimiento a finales de los cincuenta y principios de los sesenta en Europa y los Estados Unidos hasta su apogeo en los ochenta, el libro discute las diversas facetas de Fluxus y el enfasis de este en los ambitos de la accion y de la renovacion poetica, linguistica y objetual, asi como en el papel del artista en una sociedad crecientemente acomodada que cuestiona el arte como una practica de la critica social. Tanto los estudiantes como los interesados en las ultimas tendencias del arte contemporaneo consideraran este un recurso unico."show more
