In the Spirit of Fluxus

In the Spirit of Fluxus
Minneapolis, USA: Walker Art Center, 1993
31.5 x 44.5 x 9 cm.
Edition of 100

To accompany the exhibition of the same name, this briefcase, borrowing its style from the 1965 Fluxkit, housed the exhibition catalogue (with essays by S. Anderson, E. Armstrong, A. Huyssen, B. Jenkins, D. Kahn, Owen F. Smith and K. Stiles) and various multiples and ephemera.

The contents reportedly vary somewhat, but typically include a T-shirt by Ben Vautier, Jeff Berner's "Cosmic inventory kit", buttons and cards by Henry Flynt and Giuseppe, "Geoff Hendricks' "Picnic garbage placemat", George Brecht's, "Drip music" and "Solo for violin", the Tellus compilation cassette that Barbara Moore edited, "Flux Box. Do-it-yourself" by Larry Miller, postage stamps by Robert Watts, a rubber stamp, a Yoko Ono shopping bag, and other printed items.
