""Fluxus"", schlägt man mit den Lippen leicht dagegen klingt der Name schon noch nach.

Ein Sammelbecken internationaler Avantgarden der (Anti-)Kunst, schon damals auf drei Kontinenten und im Ostblock unterwegs, frech, fruchtbar, experimentell, international, sicher eine der wesentlichen gesellschaftlichen Kunstströmungen ihrer Zeit.

Fluxus means change among other things. The Fluxus of 1992 is not the Fluxus of 1962 and if it pretends to be - then it is fake. The real Fluxus moves out from its old center into many directions, and the paths are not easy to recognize without lining up new pieces, middle pieces and old pieces together.

12 Ideas of Fluxus

Fluxus encourages dialogue among like minds, regardless of nation. Fluxus welcomes the dialogue of unlike minds when social purposes are in tune.

A democratic approach to culture and to life is a part of the Fluxus view of globalism. A world inhabited by individuals of equal worth and value suggests -- or requires -- a method for each individual to fulfill his or her potential. This, in turn, suggests a democratic context within which each person can decide how and where to live, what to become, how to do it.
