Dick Higgins

Dick Higgins (Cambridge, UK, 1938 – Quebec, Canada, 1998). Another leading figure of Fluxus and an important part of Francesco Conz’s collection, Higgins’ work ranged from painting, performance, poetry and happenings, intermedia, film, typography, book art, and publishing. Higgins is also known for his contributions to art theory that opened a world of artistic territory for those around him. At different times, Higgins described these worlds under the various rubrics of experimental art and the arts of the new mentality. The most expressive term and the one that Higgins most durably gave to the English language, was the word “intermedia.” One of Higgins most notable works, the representations of supposed mass migratory movements of population was produced as editions under the commission of Francesco Conz.
