Mark Mothersbaugh: Apotropaic Beatnik Graffiti

Must read

If you sprung the title of this book on us without disclosing the artist, we still would have guessed it was by Mr. Mothersbaugh, known for DEVO, as well as a fine art practice that consists of over a half-century of collecting and creating “mail art” (literally the art movement based on sending small-scale works through the postal service). This book, Mark Mothersbaugh: Apotropaic Beatnik Graffiti, is about a nuanced kind of performance art and the craft of correspondence, a Pynchonian version of American beatnik culture and counterculture expression.
