Michael Gibbs (1949-2009) was an artist, poet, performer, publisher, internet pioneer and art critic. He was a pioneer in the field of visual poetry, in which language is used as a visual medium. He initially studied English literature in England and from 1968 he was active in the Fluxus Movement. During his studies he started making his artist’s magazine “Kontexts”, in which he published interviews with William Burroughs and Brion Gysin, among others. From 1974 he lived and worked in Amsterdam.
His idealism was grounded in the turbulent 1960s in which Gibbs was involved in the Fluxus Movement. Just like the Russian avant garde, Dada and Surrealism, the artists of Fluxus wanted to dissolve the separation between art and life. They aimed for ‘living art’ or ‘anti-art’. In that sense Fluxus was extremely democratic and inclusive; art was made by everyone for everyone.
Artist's book, Fluxus, concrete poetry.
