You might have seen Gen mention preparing the publication of h/er notebooks in a recent NY Times article. This is it: culled from h/er private, mostly unpublished archives, the 1st volume called Archives and Documents presents 152 full colour pages of crucial early art terrorism like h/er little seen Nekrophile zine, reproduced here in full. Nekrophile magazine was conceived in 1968 by GPO as a single issue. The collages, drawings, poems and texts gathered in it deal with the themes that later prevailed in the iconography of Industrial Music. This volume also displays ultra rare and previously unseen TG and PTV documents selected by GPO. Edited by Nicolas Ballet with personal explanations and insights added by GPO, this volume is an essential visual document of Gen’s contributions to art and culture from the mid 1960s onwards with a strong emphasis on that most controversial and rewarding period of the late 70s and early 80s.
Supplementing the first volume Archives & Documents, the second book, Prophecies & Messages focuses on even more personal and magickal aspects that are the very heart of GPO’s life and art, it contains the reproduction of two magical and richly illustrated scrapbooks selected by Nicolas Ballet. Unparalleled documents of a virtual spiritual journey into h/er occult practices, essential for students of contemporary esotericism.
These books are an indispensible gift for the industrial music fan, the connoisseur of 20th and 21st century art and the novice and experts of the byways of the occult, prepared with the full collaboration of and overseen by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, it is futile to stress that this no less than a visual companion piece to the Psychick Bible.
