What is Fluxus, who is Fluxus, when and where was Fluxus? Hardly any other art movement is as difficult to define. Various writers have seen this as the reason why the movement has not become better known or met with greater success on the art market. Yet this supposition itself prompts a number of questions: 1. Was Fluxus an "art movement" at all? 2. Did the Fluxus artists actually aim for commercial success? In the light of this, it is not exactly surprising that Eric Andersen, one of the very first Fluxus artists, declared as recently as 2008 that no such thing as Fluxus ever existed, and that the widely diverging forms of expression that are now referred to as Fluxus would be more accurately characterized as "intermedia". There is also a lack of agreement as to which artists could be described as belonging to or even just associated with Fluxus.

Dorothee Richter and Ronald Kolb’s research based filmic essay in eleven chapters approaches the Fluxus movement from different angles, questioning contemporary observers as well as protagonists.
