This first publication in France of writings by Fluxus
artists underlines the paradoxical scope and variety of this tireless mouvement since its founding in Wiesbaden in 1962. Initiator, Maciunas
, who died in 1978, completely disrupts the arts which he attacks for its self importance. Inheritor of Dada
shook the cultural institutions by promoting playfulness, interaction, anonymous folk art, spirit and attitude.
