Franz Pomassl - Illustrations for Hakim Bey's "CHAOS" (1991)

The years before Maldoror was founded (in 1987) I often visited London (UK) to meet and interview artists I admired. During this period I became close friends with music group Coil; Geff Rushton and Peter Christopherson introduced me to Hakim Bey's pamphlet "CHAOS, The Broadsheets of Ontological Anarchism". After 1987 I had a period of visiting Vienna, through Kadmon. He introduced me to Hermann Nitsch and many other Austrian artists, among them Franz Pomassl. I asked Franz if he wanted to illustrate a Dutch translation of "CHAOS", and he agreed. Unfortunately, our translation never got published. Independent publisher Ravijn did that some time later. Franz' website is here.
