The Fluxus newspapers, produced between 1964 and 1979, are primary evidence of the lively, cross-disciplinary collaboration that artists associated with the Fluxus “movement” undertook. Fluxus output consisted as much of inane observations and simple (and often absurd) instructions for actions as it did of performances and tangible objects (e.g., the “Flux Kits” and other merchandise that were listed as for sale in the newspapers). As such, these newspapers not only record the work of George Brecht, Nam Jun Paik, La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Dick Higgins, and others—they embody it. These four issues comprise a very significant addition to the Art & Architecture Library’s existing Fluxus holdings (issues no. 3, 5, and 7) and help ensure that this important primary resource may be approached as comprehensively as possible by Stanford’s researchers.
