Filmed in conjunction with the exhibition Thing/Thought: Fluxus Editions, 1962-1978. During the course of the exhibition, the display of Fluxkits-collective groupings of Fluxus Editions assembled by George Maciunas-will change. Artists-some who were original members of Fluxus-have been invited to select objects from the kits and determine their arrangement.
