Assembling Jack Kerouac ephemera dossiers and stamping postcards, scribbling letters while chatting, grouching about misplacing things and listening to REM’s “Fables of the Reconstruction.”
Hang out, no big deal.
PS Wanna get some artifacts for your archive and amusement? Be sure to watch the “Kerouac in Kobe” video to the end.
Bonus from Simon Warner, author of “text, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” and writer/curator of highly recommended “Rock and the Beat Generation” newsletter, who says:
Thank you, Dave Olson, for sharing such a great selection of Kerouac in Kobe 2020/2021 exhibition artefacts: what a wonderful gathering of programmes and images, text, recordings and postcards!
Look out for an interview at Rock and the Beat Generation with the Canadian bodhisattva of Japanese Beat very soon
