“Put out the light” is the last edition Iannone Dorothy made before she died in december 2022 at the age of 89. Dorothy became well-known with what she called “ecstatic unity” that referred to erotic and sexual explorations featured in many of her works. In “An Icelandic Saga” she describes a trip made in the late sixties to Reykjavik in Iceland, with her then American husband James Upham. There she met and fell madly in love with Swiss Fluxus artist Dieter Roth.
