Fluxus Codex

Publisher

Produced several years after Fluxus etc. and its addenda, Fluxus Codex is the most comprehensive study of objects from the Silverman Collection as compiled by Jon Hendricks, then the curator of the collection. Organized alphabetically by artist, the publication offers a history of Fluxus Editions—cheap, portable publications and multiples—from the collection by linking them to citations from George Maciunas’s correspondence with artists, other Fluxus publications, and an array of archival documents dating from the early 1960s to Maciunas’s death, in 1978. Fluxus Codex has become a primary and indispensable resource for identifying works from this collection, now held at MoMA, and for establishing dates and mapping the various forms and contexts in which the works circulated.
