Natural Born Fluxus is that tendency among artists to engage in Fluxus-like behaviors even if they never heard of Fluxus. Or possibly we could say that Fluxus ideas come out of a naturally occurring tendency in all artists that we now think of as Fluxus. It could be that the free wheeling nature of Fluxus allows artists to enjoy their creative, or at least peculiar, tendencies in an unfettered way that other forms of organized artistic activities do not. The sorts of things that delight a Fluxus artist tend to be of an ephemeral nature, contain a humorous element and refer to that mysterious some-thing that makes one laugh at a joke; call it irony or the unexpected twist, Fluxus artists enjoy a good surprise and a cleaver turn of phrase. They are willing to remain innocent enough to be easily amused and fall for a good trick. It is this adherence to a child-like sense of wonder that this book hopes to illustrate.
