VA - The Fluxus Newspaper

"The complete collection of Fluxus' newspapers featuring work by iconic conceptual artists, writers and composers. This volume collects all 11 newspapers published by the Fluxus artists' collective between January 1964 and March 1979. Although published irregularly, the newspapers promoted Fluxus events and publications -- especially the group's famous multiples and Fluxkits -- with advertising materials, order forms and price lists interspersed throughout. More than just a space for promotion and information, the newspapers featured artworks by more than 60 artists as well as appropriated newspaper headlines, advertisements, articles and comic strips. The Fluxus Newspaper exemplifies the group's 'do-it-yourself' attitude: an approach that is comical, collaborative, interdisciplinary and anti-commercial. The periodical is also an early example of the artist newspaper: a medium which grew out of the underground press movement and flourished in the late '60s and '70s as artists sought new mediums for distributing their work. Artists include: Ay-OCarol BergéJoseph BeuysWalter De MariaWillem de RidderRobert FilliouKen FriedmanAllan KaprowAlison KnowlesGeorge MacuniasYoko OnoNam June PaikBen PattersonDieter RothTakako SaitoWolf Vostell." - Primary Information.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
