On U B U W E B, you can access short Fluxus films from the 60s, such as Zen for Film by Nam June Paik, Word Movie by Paul Sharits, and Eye Blink by Yoko Ono. These are cool. Poem-cool.
Starting in the early sixties, Fluxus (which means "to flow") followed in the footsteps of the Futurist and Dada avant-gardes, going against The Establishment and promoting imposture as an aesthetic.
Fluxus valorizes the interdisciplinary, bringing together diverging sources of inspiration. Initially received as little more than an international network of pranksters, the playful artists of Fluxus were, and remain, a network of visionaries whose work aims to reconcile art with everyday life.
Cool indeed. The first time I was exposed to the Fluxus art movement was with a show at the Houston CAM. One of my email addys is firstname.lastname@example.org. No one gets it. That’s just how cool I am. hehehehe
