ARTFORUM reviews 'Intermedia, Fluxus and the Something Else Press: Selected Writings by Dick Higgins'

"Dick Higgins, Fluxus affiliate and founder of the Something Else Press, once described the books he published as a series of 'love letters to the future.' A new volume of writings by the artist, composed between 1962 and 1997 and selected by Steve Clay and Ken Friedman, delivers on this promise, making Higgins’ underappreciated contributions as publisher, editor, patron, theorist and historian of the 1960s neo-avant-gardes legible to today’s students and scholars of the marginal, obscure and quirkily experimental. An intoxicating, multifaceted bouquet of various genres of Higgins’s writing, the anthology highlights the artist’s role as participant-historian in numerous early postmodern currents across the visual arts, literature, music, theater and dance. Above all, Higgins served as a mouthpiece for Fluxus, concrete and sound poetry and intermedia—the latter a term he adopted and reinvented in the mid-sixties to describe the myriad new practices that probed the gaps between established mediums and disciplines."
