William Burroughs Conference – Cut-Ups@2023

Remembering William Burroughs. William Burroughs passed away on this day, August 2, 1997, in Lawrence, Kansas. Gone but quite definitely not forgotten!

Next month sees a major (three-day) conference taking place at The University of Chicago Center in Paris, CUT-UPS@2023  (12th-15th September)

Co-sponsored by Moloko Print in Germany and Third Mind Books in the US, CUT-UPS@2023 is the post-Covid version of CUT-UPS@60, an EBSN (European Beat Studies Network) Special Conference that was scheduled to happen in 2020 to mark the 60th anniversary of the first publications to use the revolutionary cut-up methods initiated by Burroughs and Brion Gysin at the Beat Hotel in Paris

The revolutionary, far-sighted, remarkable, William Burroughs!
