Greenwich Village Book Desecration League (GVBDL) celebrates creative destruction, community, and collaboration. Once a week (or so), a rotating group of artists, writers, musicians, etc. meet to brethe new life into old literature through cut-and-paste methods. Maybe some ink or watercolor. The result: A collective rejuvenation of book parts. A periodical party with production.
Each piece has been worked on by at least two collaborators. A third person has decided if a piece is finished. No signatures. Ever. The artworks are communally owned.
Because not everyone reads, but everyone looks.
