[ MEET THE DEVELOPERS ]
Flux (fluks), n [from L. fluxus, to flow]. Fluxus refers to an international movement of artists, composers, and writers working together during the 1960s and 70s. The group's members are famous for their creation of ephemeral and genreblurring "intermedia" artworks, their performance events, and the international networks they forged to facilitate creative collaboration.
The University of Iowa Libraries houses one of the most significant collections of Fluxus art and ephemera in the United States, containing works by internationally acclaimed artists Ken Friedman, John Cage, Dick Higgins, George Maciunas, Yoko Ono, Mieko Shiomi, Nam June Paik, George Brecht, Robert Filliou and others. The Fluxus Digital Collection will consist of an elegant online archive designed as an interactive resource for scholars and the general public, including a wealth of primary documents and contextual resources.
