It seems as though nearly everyone I meet, who isn't "into" Fluxus, doesn't know much about Fluxus. I.E/ They've never heard of it!
I've come up with these four commonalities that encompasses most Fluxus work , and most of the Fluxus Philosophy.
- Fluxus is an attitude. It is not a movement or a style.[84
- Fluxus is intermedia. Fluxus creators like to see what happens when different media intersect. They use found and everyday objects, sounds, images, and texts to create new combinations of objects, sounds, images, and texts.
- Fluxus works are simple. The art is small, the texts are short, and the performances are brief.
- Fluxus is fun. Humor has always been an important element in Fluxus.
You can also go to Wikipedia to get a bit more of the basics.

Better still, buy and read one or more of these books.
