Because I've been a bad blogger, this sad news Dave sent me days ago about the death of Terry Fox is a bit late. But here it is:
TERRY FOX (1943–2008)
The American performance artist Terry Fox has died in Cologne. As Der Standard reports, Fox was a definitive force in the Fluxus movement along with Joseph Beuys and Nam June Paik. In the 1960s and '70s, Fox participated in a radical move away from traditional art forms and used his body in performances that polarized audiences. The artist had been living in Cologne since 1996; the city's Museum Ludwig made the announcement of his death.
You can see some of his works here. And the most excellent UbuWeb has his most excellent Children's Tapes here.
