Kurt, Kathleen 'n' Kathy: Cut and paste and the art of being For real

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter reevaluates the artistic praxis of musician Kurt Cobain through a consideration of the impact of of riot grrrl praxis on his output. Looking at the influence of William Burroughs and Kathy Acker through the cut-up technique, I trace the literary lineage of Cobain's work, evaluating the place of collage, aleatory writing, and deconstructionist theory in his oeuvre.
