* ''Fluxus Codex'', ed. John 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.  [http://post.at.moma.org/sources/5/publications/81]

Books
  • Harry Ruhé (ed.), Fluxus: The Most Radical and Experimental Art Movement of the Sixties, Amsterdam: A, 1979. In 1979, this publication was the most comprehensive history of Fluxus activities, editions, and general Fluxus literature, with an essay on the history of Fluxus by Ruhé. Useful as an early inclusive history of Fluxus compared to the increasingly less comprehensive canonized versions of Fluxus. Loose-leaf alphabetized artists’ pages with biographies, lists of works, publications, and many photographs assembled in a three-ring binder.
  • Ken Friedman (ed.), The Fluxus Reader, Academy Editions, 1998, 309 pp. Contains histories, theories, critical perspectives, and transcriptions from an interview with Maciunas by Larry Miller; an essay by Miller; and an interview with Billie Maciunas regarding her life, sex, and experiences with George Maciunas, and her encounters with Fluxus, by Susan L. Jarosi. Also includes an extensive chronology of events in Fluxus history, and a selected list of Fluxus art works and related primary and secondary source materials.

Smith, Fluxus: The History Of An Attitude, San Diego State University Press, 1998, 336 pp. Comprehensive survey of the birth, development, and cultural end (or “remnants”) of the Fluxus movement, elucidating the historical and philosophical complexities of the ethos of the movement and illustrating the enduring impact of Fluxus today.
