Dick Higgins - Postface
Dick Higgins, one of the main figures of Fluxus (poet, musician, historian, theoretician, editor) points out the particularity of poet-artists who, since German and English Romanticism, have refused to make distinctions between what is sonorous, visual and written. Fluxus takes up the flag of Dada and brandishes it.
Dick Higgins (1938-1998) was a poet, composer, performer, publisher and art theorist. He studied with John Cage and Henry Cowell, participated in the elaboration of the first happening in 1958 and co-founded Fluxus in 1961. A seminal figure in the concrete poetry movement, he is the founder of Something Else Press, realizing a considerable amount of publications about the artists of this time. He introduced the notion of "intermedia" to describe his artistic activities, defining it in a 1965 essay by the same name. His visual work has been shown in many personal and collective exhibitions in the entire world. His texts are published in many reviews and he also produced a quantity of disks, films and videos.
