KF: This is a danger. It's a basic problem that we face in all forms of documentation, no matter who makes them and no matter the purpose for which they're made. It seems to me that there is a strong argument to be made for a variety of clear, understandable sources of document from several views. In the recent past, most documentation on art has been compiled or presented by a handful of journalists, critics and finally by art historians. I suggest that there can be valid approaches to art documentation by scholars from several fields and by artists themselves.
The better, the broader, the more clear and conscious a body or documents is, the better we can understand what's happened. I believe that documentation has valid goals and purposes. These purposes can be realized or abused. How we handle documentation, how much and how well, makes the difference.

Reading a Fluxus Book
Labels: Fluxus Book
It isn't usually even fun and games, which is what the public thinks of as Fluxus. So I am marginalized in Fluxus shows, or I am left out of other collections because "This is not a Fluxus gallery/museum show/collection." The problem is all but unavoidable, and in vain can one point out that if Fluxus is important, it is because of its focus on intermedia, that Maciunas recognized this repeatedly, that he knew perfectly well that there was room in Fluxus for work which did not resemble his at all. If one says anything like this in public, it is taken to be a disloyalty to George or some kind of in-fighting for prestige. I have sometimes been tempted to show my work under a false name in order to escape this syndrome altogether. But even that sounds as if I were ashamed of my Fluxus past, which I am not, even though it is not awfully relevant to my work since the late seventies.
Also I still feel affinities to some of my Fluxus colleagues, though the work of others has, in my opinion, become repetitious crap. Many of my Fluxfriends could do with a little more self-criticism, in my opinion. Fluxus also has its share of hangers-on, people who were utterly marginal to the group and who kept their distance during the years when Fluxus had not acquired its present and perhaps false public image, but who are now all too willing to con their way into the list and to enter their colors for the next tournament.

Litsa Spathi = Nobody = The real CryBaby
Dear Mick Boyle, You are wearing the wrong pampers. You gave ME the name CryBaby. I accepted it and published my reaction with the video. Now you behave like that other child that also wants to be a crybaby but not realy is one... The video tells it all...
Enjoy the video!
Reaction for Mick Boyle
Nobody replies: Micky Boyle is right. I even found a video where the Fluxlist people documented how the tried to get rid of this ' crybaby':
Enjoy the video!

AMERISCAN - version 3
By Litsa Spathi, Europe.
1. Focus with your eyes on a concept made by somebody else.
2. Take a computer, camera or scanner.
3. Modify it.
4. Log in to Fluxlist with a cryptical identity.
5. Regardless on what the current topic is; publish it on the Fluxlist.
6. Write ironical comments and 'correct' the original concept like a teacher.
7. Arrange it so that you entry stays on top of the Fluxlist.
