One of the Guardian Unlimited Books' top 10 literary blogs: "A home-grown treasure ... smart, serious analysis"
The Bookaholics' Guide to Book Blogs: "Mark Thwaite ... has a maverick, independent mind"
Friday 09 December 2005
I have just come across UbuWeb ("a completely independent resource dedicated to all strains of the avant-garde, ethnopoetics, and outsider arts") and I can't believe I've not visited before: their Artist Index is astonishing.
I was thrilled to find recordings by Gertrude Stein made during the years of 1934-1935 including The Making of Americans: Parts 1 & 2, Matisse, A Valentine to Sherwood Anderson, If I Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso, Portrait of Christian Bérard, Madame Recamier: An Opera, How She Bowed To Her Brother and Interview (1934).
The site also includes UbuWeb Films featuring works by Samuel Beckett, Joseph Beuys, Luis Buñuel, John Cage, Henri Chopin, Rene Clair, Guy Debord, Marcel Duchamp, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Man Ray, Walter, Situationist International, Edgard Varêse and Le Corbusier, Dziga Vertov, Rene Vienet and many more.
Also worth checking out is /ubu ("slash ubu") Editions (book-length downloads from the likes of Barbara Cole, Robert Kelly, Peter Manson, Ron Silliman and loads more).
