Art Inherited

Fluxus..."is a vision perhaps better suited to an era when the affluent society is beginning to lose its interest in individual goods and instant satisfaction in favour of grander concepts.
Macinunas did not have a hegemony of migrant peoples in mind. All the artists who would have stopped over with him at the junctions between Madison Avenue and Siberia were to offer their superfluous artistic talent as though for the Marxist utopia of a classic society. In terms of art history, that is neither avantgarde nor postmodern. It basically says that high art inherited from the realms of our parents can sometimes be a source of suffering."
