Identifier: CC-27820-28953
Scope and Contents

The text of this book appears to be done either as automatic writing or as an adaptation of a cut-up from another text in the style of William Burroughs. Typewritten poems in red color and Spanish poems in black letraset form this text. The stiff pages are taken fom line printers that have regular perforations on the edges. The tipped-in drawings in laminated plastic depict surrealistic figures and abstractions are placed on black stock paper; they appear to be cut-up fragments of larger drawings. A laminated drawing by Jan Voss is tipped-in to the final page. The covers are covered front and back with flame-like design papers. The inside front cover end paper is a psychedelic poster from the movie "Moby Dick." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

He was a professor at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris between 1987 and 1992.
