Development

PREVIOUS

The film came out two years ago and has had screenings at a number of international major art institutions since. 

Fluxus instructional pieces have been exhibited and enacted internationally for decades. 

Benefits

- Blockbuster famous works.

- New never before seen in Australia Fluxus film with rare footage of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, George Maciunus. 

- Highly engaged work, direct interaction with the community. 

- A chance for the community to look back through history at older social practice and interventionist performance. 

- It's a work that the "general public" may connect with physically and psychologically without an elaborate knowledge of art history. Some of the general public may just see "Yoko Ono" and "John Lennon" as Fluxus artists in the film and look based on their fame. 

- Jeffrey Perkins is a good friend, alive and well in New York now and happy to do any workshops, talks etc online... he is also happy to show his "cab driver" recordings of conversations over the 70s' and 80s' when he was a cab driver in New York.

Challenges

- Getting the audiences involved in Fluxus workshops. 

Accomodations for Covid 

- Workshops can happen via zoom easily.
