- Major new additions to the Before or Since edition of Soanyway -http://www.soanyway.org.uk/beforeorsince.htm
Unlike any other Soanyway edition, Before or Since arose out of the opportunity to publish a selection of new additions by Richard Kostelanetz to his Dictionary of the Avant Gardes alongside an interview we commissioned Michael Butterworth to do with Richard. We invited new submissions responding to the concept of the avant-garde, or specific Dictionary entries, or deas and observations in the interview. Our selection from the worldwide response is now published alongside Richard and Michael's original material.
There is new writing from David Berridge and Rachel Lois Clapham, film and audio work from the American filmmakers Neil Needleman, Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa and Jax Deluca, and a contribution from the American composer Henry Gwiazda. There are also book works by Christina Mitrense, Aymee Smith and Lynne Williams, poetry from Seekers of Lice and Paul Wright, as well as writing from our regular contributor Robert Clarke and a video-text work of mine(Derek Horton). Emma Dexter has worked with the legacy of the poet, sculptor and major collector of Surrealism, Edward James, and we are pleased to present a series of images of her sculptures, as well as an extraordinary series of paintings by Alex Dipple.
