Flux Paper Events

George Maciunas
1931 Lithuania – 1978 USA


Flux Paper Events
(1976)
Maciunas experiment manipulating 16 differently worked papers.
Pages have been destructively altered – torn, cut, folded,  punched, crumpled, stapled, glued, dog-eared, perforated and smeared with unknown substances – to record the sheer physicality of the artist’s actions and to emphasize the potential for sensory awareness even within the reading of a book. 21 x 15cm. Edition of 500.
3rd booklet from Edition Hundertmark. Photographer Carl Warner.
