Dear Colleagues,

For those interested in Fluxus and intermedia, the 2005 special issue of the journal Visible Language (Vol. 39, No. 3) on Fluxus and Legacy is now posted to the Fluxus and Intermedia section of my Academia page at URL:


Published as a full digital reprint with permission of Visible Language, you are free to download it, add it to your digital resources collection, distribute and use it as you wish.



Any community of thought and practice that expands beyond the circle of its immediate founders faces the problem of legacy and history. This problem becomes inevitable when a community endures long enough to survive the founders. When these problems enter the realm of history, they are multiplied by the number of scholars and practitioners involved. The intermedia nature of Fluxus brings in questions and histories of art, literature, performance, music and other fields, while the mixed feelings and motives of younger practitioners raise other questions: the desire to claim legacy, the wish to deny legacy, anxiety of influence and more. Finally, the needs and demands of collectors, gallerists and museums compounds the problem. This special issue addresses these problems. Copyright (c) 2005 by Visible Language.

With best wishes for the holidays and the new year!
