Naked Luch @ 50 1959-2009

Naked Luch @ 50 1959-2009 :
New site by Olivier Harris


To mark the 50th Anniversary of the publication of Naked Lunch, we are hosting celebratory events in Paris and London in 2009 during which a variety of artists, musicians, and writers will perform and read their work in tribute to Burroughs and his great book. There will be exhibitions, films, discussions, dérives, magic and more…
The events will reflect the continuing significance and influence of Naked Lunch throughout different cultures and media, and will provide opportunities for admirers of the book to contribute during open mike sessions. Check this site for details about the times and venues for forthcoming events, screenings, symposia, and shows, and for information on the performers and contributors. In addition we will post news about a special tribute to take place in New York in 2009 as well as information on planned homages to be staged by other Burroughsians around the world.
