About this title

Synopsis:

Explores the roots and fruits of this radical art movement.

Here Emmett Williams turns cartoonist, in the footsteps of Lyonel Feininger, Rube Goldberg, and Ad Reinhardt. His pseudo-historical collage-drawings, digitally remastered by Ann Noel for this edition, are peopled with often-irreverent images of his real-life friends and colleagues. Williams, the oldest living member of Fluxus, assumes the role of know-it-all ringmaster in a three-ring circus that highlights the fanciful antics of the stars of Fluxus, Happenings, and Performance Art: George Maciunas, John Cage, Claes Oldenburg, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Joseph Beuys, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, and Williams and Noel themselves.

On the left-hand pages, opposite each cartoon, are documents from the author's personal archives relating some of the amusing and unexpected things that really happened in Fluxus events over the years. 140 color illustrations.
