will alexander on his connection to surrealism


quote:

i picked up a book on rimbaud-and it was not Starkie- it was another text [of] which i have forgotten the author- probably fortunately becoz it was a magical contact for me & i had been ripening to a certain kind of degree at the pt that i picked up the text without knowing anything about surrealism and there it was and i was able to formulate a certain kind of aura […]imploded inside of me.

Arka, here may be something for you. Exquisite Corpse was a journal started in '83 by its general editor, Andrei Codrescu. As best as I can tell it stopped production Jan '11. It worked within the paramters of International Surrealism. For anyone interested in the methodology of Surrealism there are a whole lot of resources here. Check out the archives especially.

You might be interested in the notion of exquisite corpse, an association game started up by A. Breton and Co.
