Publisher's description: Fluxus founder George Maciunas (1931-1978) first published his posterDiagram of Historical Development of Fluxus and Other 4 Dimentional, Aural, Optic, Olfactory, Epithelial and Tactile Art Forms in the Swedish magazine Kalejdoskop (issue three) in 1979. This issue of the magazine consisted of three accounts of Fluxus, one being Maciunas' historical diagram and the others being two essays by Mats B. (one in English and one in Swedish) on the poster's sleeve summarizing the movement. Primary Information's new facsimile edition recreates all three as they originally appeared in 1979, housed in a printed card sleeve in a polybag. As the movement's founder, figurehead and graphic designer, Maciunas was responsible for Fluxus' strong graphic identity, which is evident here; one can also connect Diagram of Historical Development to Maciunas' Learning Machines, which consisted of diagrams, maps and lists that prized non-linearity and correlative overlap between various historical fields of knowledge. One of several versions made by Maciunas, Diagram of Historical Development is a family tree for Fluxus, outlining the development of Fluxus while situating it within a wider cultural spectrum, sometimes to humorous effect.
