1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter, writer, sound poet, lyricist, performance artist - Brion Gysin (1916-86) first came to prominence in the 1950s in the heady atmosphere of the so-called Beat Hotel in Paris. His enormous range of radical ideas would become a source of inspiration for artists of the Beat Generation, as well as for their successors (among them David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Keith Haring, and Laurie Anderson)." "The sheer variety of visual material illustrated in this first comprehensive study of Gysin's life and work reveals him as a remarkable artist. The accompanying texts include a biographical outline by John Grigsby Geiger, together with first-hand reminiscences by Gysin's friends and contemporaries such as John Giorno and Bernard Heidsieck, and analyses of his work and ideas by later scholars."--Jacket

William S. Burroughs/Cut by Axel Heil( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces William S. Burroughs's artistic work in its entire breadth for the first time and shows numerous works that the author created with Brion Gysin, Ian Sommerville and Antony Balch from the 1960s onwards under the notion of "The Third Mind", as well as "collaborations" with other artists such as John Giorno or George Condo. Ian MacFadyen's essay "Codename Burroughs" examines the manifold connections between literary and experimental pictorial production. Following the idea of The Future of the Past series, Axel Heil addresses the importance of Burroughs to contemporary art. The interview by Jean-Jacques Lebel with Burroughs and Gysin (Paris, 1982) is published in German for the first time. The book was produced in collaboration with James Grauerholz and The Estate of William S. Burroughs. Exhibition: ZKM, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien, Karlsruhe, Germany (2012). Deichtorhallen, Sammlung Falckenberg, Hamburg, Germany (29.03-23.06.2013)

The cat inside by William S Burroughs( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is an unexpected side to William Burroughs - the author of weird and disturbing fictions had a great fondness for cats. This is his earnest appreciation of the cats he knew, a record of his dreams of cats, and a meditation on the long, mysterious relationship between cats and their human hosts. In The Cat Inside, Burroughs is touching when writing of the many strays he took in over the years, disdainful of dogs ('self-righteous as a lynch mob'), always erudite and surprisingly caring - it is a genuine revelation, for Burroughs fans and cat lovers alike." -- Book cover
