Boris Vian, Alphonse Allais, Gavin Bryars, Thieri Foulc & others


Texts by Alphonse Allais, Boris Vian, Dawn Ades, Fernando Arrabal, Daniel Levin Becker, Gavin Bryars, Adam Dant, Joan Fontcuberta, Thieri Foulc, Robert Irwin, Plausible fr., Joanna Walsh &c.

This large double issue traces the digressions of exegesis through various topographies of erudition or expression: Theometry, Eructation, Erotology and the works of Boris Vian (three of his letters to the Collège) and Alphonse Allais (with a translation of his April Foolish Album tipped in). Our guides are not necessarily native to these regions, rather they are thematic: the pataphysics of amateurism, calculation, delusion, limitation and erasure.
