The Fluxlist Blog is an online intermedia community of Fluxlist members. Fluxlist is an internet discussion list for all things Fluxus.
I am currently writing a dissertation on Fluxus, and am wondering what the current Fluxus contingent feel has changed since the fluxus funeral? I would be most interested to hear any views from current members.I may also be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.orgAll the Best,Jake
JakeI don't know what the "current Fluxus contingent" feel has changed because the only ones left from it are Alison Knowles, Ben Patterson, Ben Vautier, Phillip Corner, Mieko Shiomi, Yoko Ono, Larry Miller, Ken Friedman, Geoff Hendricks, Erik Andersen and a few others so you should ask them directly. The rest have passed away. A lot of my younger friends call themselves "Fluxus" but that does not make them Fluxus in my opinion. I hope you are not talking about them. They are lovely people and make lovely Flux-influenced works so I call them Neo-Fluxus or Post-Fluxus or Post-Mannerists but they are not Fluxus. Other people have less kind names for them. Many do works that are in the sensibility of Fluxus but their insistance to mislabel themselves leads to confusion and the creation of works that are not of a Fluxus sensibility and in this way misinfomation is spread that dilutes the power of genuine, original Fluxus works. Sometimes I call my activities Fluxpan or Jungfluxus because I adore fluxus but I am not stupid enough to confuse myself with a previous generation or to convince others that I am something that I am not. Each generation must make new works and think up new names for their activities and use the tools uniquely available to them. Mark BlochPO Box 1500NY NY 10009 USAwww.panmodern.com
