This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, poet and performance artist much associated with the Fluxus movement, Emmett Williams was born in America but spent most of his life in Europe with Berlin as his primary base.  He wrote several books about Fluxus including A Flexible History of Fluxus Facts and Fictions, which was published just weeks before his death in Berlin on February 14, 2007.

He participated in the famous festival of performances in Wiesbaden, Germany.  From 1966 to 1970, he was in New York City as editor-in-chief of the 'Something Else Press', and in that capacity was editor of the Anthology of Concrete Poetry (1967).  He also did teaching in the United States including at Harvard University.

In 1990, he became President of the Artists Museum in Lodz, Germany, and in 2004 organized that city's first Biennale exhibition.  In 1996, he received the Hannah Hoch Prize.  During the 1990s, his work was represented by galleries in New York City and Cincinnati.
