𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐋𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 #13 presents Othernode reads Burroughs
Thursday 2nd of July, 20pm LIVE from our IG account @stichtingartisbook.

Othernode was performing a selection of texts written by Burroughs and he was speaking about his relationship to them. About the work, Othernode shared:

“Without Burroughs there would be no beatnicks and so also no hippies, no punks, no yuppies and no internet. Nada. There would also be no Foucault, no Deleuze, no McLuhan and probably no Sci-Fi worth reading. All those might of course have happened at one point, but the way it all played out Burroughs played a major part, and I would like to make this reading session in honour of this original rebel and to lift my figurative hat in honour of this illegitimate grandpa’ of mine”.

𝘞𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘮 𝘚𝘦𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥 𝘉𝘶𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘴 𝘐𝘐 (February 5, 1914 – August 2, 1997) was an American writer and visual artist, who could be considered as the father of the beat generation and his controversial absurdist-criticism (as well as his persona in itself) has had a major impact on culture and criticism since.

𝘖𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘰𝘥𝘦 𝘈𝘒𝘈 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘴 𝘈𝘳𝘷𝘪𝘥 𝘈𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘴𝘰𝘯 is a musician and audio-visual artist based in Groningen, Netherlands.
