Water Yam Fluxus No. C
No Place (Germany): George Brecht, No Date (1963). First edition. Loose Sheets. Very Good +. Artist "book" in a box created by George Brecht with outer design label by George Maciunas and typeset by Tomas Schmit. Two piece cardboard box with laminated paper wrapper housing 78 "event-scores" or "flux-scores" printed on various size cards. Also includes 3 cards from the famous European Fluxshop, the international mail-order arm of the Fluxus Group. The box, sometimes refered to as a Fluxbox or Fluxkit contains a large number of small printed cards containing instructions which could be performed in public or private and are meant to be open-ended leaving a wide degree for chance and imagination and interpretation to take place. Although reprinted several times in several sizes and shapes and using different materials, this first edition is one of the essential fluxus objects of the period. Although not dated, the first edition was published in Germany circa 1963. Now considered one of the most influential artworks released by the international avant-garde art movement known as Fluxus. Although it is always difficult to know when one of the flux boxes is complete due to the ephemeral nature of their design it is useful to note that the copy held in the Fondazione Bonotto Fluxus collection also includes the same number of "flux-scores". Even their copy lacks the additional European Fluxshop cards. Condition is quite high. The cards are all in fine condition. The box and paper wrapper showing only very light handling wear.
