Celebrating George Maciunas
Merging Fluxus with Life!
A major Lithuanian effort
Something truly revolutionary happened in Kaunas, Lithuania, during 2017-2022: a major effort was made to inject Fluxus into the community of everyday life. Bringing Fluxus to life -- on this scale with this many people -- had never been attempted before!

Acivities included the following:
  • George Maciunas national postage stamp
  • George Maciunas Square (a triangle!) created in front of his childhood home
  • Annual Fluxus Festivalis celebration of George Maciunas's birthday -- performances, costume creation activities, and a parade to George Maciunas Square
  • FLUXUS LABAS! (HELLO FLUXUS!) -- a major multi-year effort of nearly 1,000 events organized by 300 volunteers involving nearly 120,000 citizens. Fluxus Agents were trained and Community Laboratories were developed to bring the spirit of Fluxus creativity into Lithuanian life as part of Kaunas celebrating being honored as a European City of Culture in 2022

Celebrating George Maciunas's Birthday
