BTW - Cecil Touchon (in the Art in America article) is a member of our humble group!

The magazine Art in America includes a feature on asemic writing in it's May 2020 issue.
The article is "The Asemic Effect" by David Ebony and includes work by Cecil Touchan (IUOMA member); Scott Helmes (longtime visual poet); Federico Federici (visual poet); and Rosaire Appel (well-known asemic writer.
Books by Michael Jacobson's Post-Asemic Press are highlighted. Michael is curator of The New Post-Literates, A Gallery of Asemic Writing.
The article reviews Asemics: The Art of Writing by Peter Schwenger, which explores asemic writers/artists such as Nany Bell Scott and many others.
This is artworld recognition for asemic writing!
Hope the link works for you.

Some really interesting process-oriented pieces by Kerri Pullo (Arizona, USA) at Asemic Front 2 from 2017-18 notebooks. A must for KP friends & fans!

Thx BG!

Beating the confinement blues, this is great time for collabs!

Kristine Snodgrass (Florida, USA) & I are doing an extended collab series,  part snail mail and part internet. Not all of it will turn up on AF2 so I'll share some of the results here hoping anyone else who wants to do asemic vispo collabs will jump in with starters, whatever.
