Charles Bukowski was considered the champion of the outsiders, the lost, the lonely, and the outcasts of society. His work is still vividly relevant today. Overall, Bukowski wrote about the human condition, something that can be applied to any time period regardless of changes in technology, politics, or societal conflict. 

Doors open at 5:45pm (for best seating please arrive early). All attendees have a chance to win Bukowski books, CDs, DVDs, and other prizes.

This year’s issue features 240 contributors from 34 countries and 7 continents, offering work on the them of NYET ZERO, intended to lay the groundwork for an artistic power grab using DADA—in the form of original art, poetry, and writing aimed at exposing the hypocrisy of the engine-idle rich on recycled paper.

The MAINTENANT series is archived in leading international institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art–New York, the BelVUE Museum–Brussels, and more. Contributors have included such artists Mark Kostabi, Raymond Pettibon, Fred Tomaselli, Nicole Eisenman, Jean-Jacques Lebel, and Kazunori Murakami, along with writers William S. Burroughs, Gerard Malanga, Charles Plymell, Jack Hirschman, and Jerome Rothenberg, with a strong contingent of punk musician-artist-writers including Grant Hart, Mike Watt, Exene Cervenka, Thurston Moore, and Alice Bag.
