Abstract

The history of networking in art took on a new quality in the 1960s with George Maciunas. His sophisticated Fluxus diagrams link together the most heterogeneous knowledge cultures, artistic trends and artists. Later, in the 1980s, when the ascendancy of the computer launched the concept of the network it became clear that the social network had been one of the chief characteristics of Fluxus. In fact, Maciunas built up an international, but selective network of contacts, which he then subjected to the explosive potential of his pictorial representations.
