a bit of Bern Porter ephemera

This showed up on youtube a while back. Appears to be the inauguration of an art center in Zurich which references the ideas of Bern Porter. The video starts out slow but it was more than a bit eerie to hear my 1988 recording of Bern reading Last Acts of Saint Fuck You inserted into their opening presentation.

Founding Porter-House Zurich 9.9.2006

If anyone knows any more details about this project in Zurich, please backchannel me.

This is an absolutely stunning video, with an eerie sense of revolution (the tension before the storm) about it.

Bern Porter's lines for me echo hauntingly against Gerald Ford's funeral (he was a simple man....)

Ciao, and happy new year.
