Lists and bibliographies
- Fluxus Codex, ed. Jon Hendricks, Detroit: Gilbert and Lila Silverman Fluxus Collection, and New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1988. Valuable resource with 416 alphabetized artists’ pages including descriptions of works; a history by Hendricks of Fluxus and the “codes” Maciunas developed for Fluxus artists and their works; and Hendricks’s and the Silverman’s own new codes and numbering system for Fluxus art. Some Fluxus artists have rejected the system; and some have also debated the idea that Fluxus was ever a “collective,” the term used as the title of a section of Fluxus Codex, which chronicles works produced by artists that Maciunas then assembled, published, and marketed. Abundant black-and-white illustrations, a color portfolio, annotations, references, and bibliography.
