This symposium will expand the defining attributes of Fluxus film by addressing the problematic role of documentation within Fluxus practices, the documentation of performances as material film objects and the performativity of media, and the politics of presence in Fluxus film and performance. Includes a screening of films by Wolf Vostell, Carolee Schneemann, Eric Andersen, David Katzive, George Brecht, George Maciunas, and Yoko Ono, among others.
