Fluxus, an avant-garde art movement that emerged in the early 1960s, eschewed traditional artistic media and practices in favor of experimental art forms that were often ephemeral and interactive. The movement, influenced by Dada and conceptual art, was characterized by a strong anti-commercial, anti-art sentiment, and sought to break down the boundaries between art and life. Fluxus artists, including Yoko Ono, George Maciunas, and Nam June Paik, engaged in a variety of artistic expressions such as performance art, installation, and video art, often with an undercurrent of humor and whimsy.

Fluxus was more a way of life and a philosophical stance than a cohesive art movement. Its members produced "event scores," which were simple instructions that anyone could follow to create a living piece of art, thereby democratizing the art-making process. The movement emphasized the artistic process over the final product, questioning the very nature and purpose of art.

In contemporary art, the influence of Fluxus is seen in performance art, conceptual art, and participatory installations. It paved the way for art forms that are more interactive, transient, and challenge traditional notions of art.

Collectors might be interested in Fluxus art for its historical significance and its role in expanding the definition of art. Fluxus pieces often blur the line between art and life, offering unique perspectives and experiences. While the ephemeral nature of many Fluxus works presents challenges for traditional collection methods, owning Fluxus artifacts, documentation, or event scores allows collectors to hold a piece of this radical and influential movement. Fluxus art appeals to those who appreciate art that is innovative, provocative, and challenges conventional ideas of what art can be.
