Artist Details


Something Else Press (1963 – 1974) was among the first publishers of an entirely new genre. The press helped to launch the medium now widely known as "artist books." From 1963 to 1974, founder Dick Higgins and his associates presented over sixty publications. These included major works by Fluxus artists Emmett Williams, Alison Knowles, Nam June Paik, Wolf Vostell, Robert Filliou, George Brecht, Geoff Hendricks, Jackson Mac Low and Bengt af Klintberg. Along with these, the press published projects by other influential twentieth-century artists such as John Cage, Marshall McLuhan, Merce Cunningham, Claes Oldenburg, Hans Richter, Dieter Roth and Allan Kaprow.
