The website launches with an exclusive article by writer and literary executor of the Burroughs estate James Grauerholz.
'Burroughs is recognised as one of the most influential writers and visionaries of the 20th century and his legacy continues to foresee what fills the headlines of the world today. Burroughs’ writing and ideas changed the course of literature and his multi-media collaborations spawned new directions in film and music. In his later years he worked extensively as a visual artist.'
The website is the official portal for announcements of all projects, publications, conferences, art exhibitions, films, events and happenings being held in celebration of 100 years of William S. Burroughs (who was born 5th February 1914) in collaboration with William Burroughs Communications, Guerrilla Zoo's curator James Elphick and historian Frank Rynne.
Guerrilla Zoo is involved in some very special events in 2014 surrounding the world of Burroughs. We will be announcing further details in the coming months! In the meantime go check out the Burroughs 100 website.
