“Fluxus: An international art movement, founded in Germany in 1962, which spread quickly throughout Europe and, later, to the United States. It was largely conceptual in nature, and the group maintained no stylistic identity, preferring instead many activities that revived the spirit of Dada. George Macunias, Fluxus’s founder and leader, championed anti-institutional street skits, guerilla theater, and performances.”
