Following the flow of freelance work at art fairs most of the year; he spent the winter months living in India.

    Much of the time during the first five years of travel was spent with the Indian-born philosopher and anti-guru U.G. Krishnamurti, until he passed away. After his death Brawley began writing a book about that experience. A regular practice of producing photographs and paintings on paper continued while living on the road. The book called Goner was published in 2011 by Non-Duality Press in the UK and by Penguin in India. The journals from the second half of the travel period are the subject of another book currently in process.

    Boekie Woekie and Jan Voss

    Boekie Woekie and Jan Voss

    Guest: Jan Voss

    Host:  Christopher Kardambikis

    Recorded on November 22nd, 2018 at Boekie Woekie in Amsterdam, Netherlands. 

    Boekie Woekie, books by artists, began paying rent for a tiny space in downtown Amsterdam on January 1st, 1986. It was then seen by its 6 founders (artists from 3 countries living in Amsterdam) as a shop for their own publications. After the first 5 years and some reshuffling of the group and with 3 of the founders left, Boekie Woekie began its second phase in a quite much bigger shop space around the corner and with a renewed concept resulting from the gained experience: the new shop opened for publications by others. There are now about 7000 titles - almost exclusively self published or small press books. Those who run it – Henriëtte van Egten (Dutch), Rúna Thorkelsdóttir (Icelandic) and Jan Voss (German) have continued their personal artists’ careers and since years count the shop itself as a sculpture in progress they work on concertedly. A small gallery space has belonged to Boekie Woekie from the beginning. There never came a stop to very small scale publishing (3 or 4 titles a year) which has lead to the yearly participation in one or two book fairs (Frankfurt, London, New York). The entirely self financing enterprise is Europe’s, if not the world’s, venue for artists’ books the longest in existence which carries books regardless to their author's fame.
