USA Surpasses All the Genocide Records!

John Lennon and Yoko Ono pose in front of George Maciunas' USA Surpasses All the Genocide Records! 

According to Fluxus scholar Jon Hendricks, Maciunas did not list himself as the creator of the work, believing the impact to be stronger if it were anonymous. The final line of the text invites viewers to write in for "Calculations and References" to an address that also doubled as the Fluxus Post Office box.

The pamphlet sent in response to such requests (below) is titled U.S. Surpases All Nazi Genocide Records! and is credited to Maciunas.
