Dear Mr. Hale,

I am an Israeli video artist and author based in Cologne/Germany.
I would describe my art work through the years as working with concrete poetry.
Please have a look at my online exhibition
I would like to start a second phase and I'm looking for a guest or several guests to present at this online exhibition. I'm also looking to be a guest in an other "location".

I would like to show Allen Ginsberg singing - Father Death Blues at (
I'm very happy to be confronted and surprised by other ideas - maybe you have a better idea?

The exhibition is coming to its fourth month and still going very well.

I would be very happy to hear your opinion on my project.
Best wishes,
Boaz Kaizman

PS; you might find this blog-post interesting - (71gedichte-blog) - mail exchange with Richard Stallman

Hey Boaz,

Sorry for the late reply. Really enjoying the well as the exchange with Stallman below.

Totally fine by me that you use Father Death from the Face to Face interview. As good of a choice as it gets, since  that song was one of Allen's favorites. Thing is, BBC own it, not  Allen's estate, so technically it's not really my place to give permission. But at least I can give you my blessing.

Cheers, Peter


Dear Peter,

The upcoming phase of the internet-exhibition 71poems/hosting is already online.
I did not send any invitations yet but I hope doing so soon. I did put in some effort to give these works a "personal touch".
Therefore I came up with the Homages to Allen Ginsberg - "Father Death Blues" and "A Desolation".
I enjoyed very much working on these wonderful pieces.
Here is the address - I really hope you will like it and would be very happy to hear your opinion.

It is very important for me and also ,I think, for this internet-exhibition to give the viewers the feeling that real people stand behind the digital technique.
I would be very grateful and I think also the viewers, if you would write a few words.
It could be for example, if I may suggest, be written in your blog - I could also add your post to 71poems/hosting if you allow.
This would be a beautiful way, I think, combining the "real world" with the "internet world".
I hope I am not being rude asking too much.

Looking very much forward to your replay.
Yours, Boaz

Dear Boaz,   Sorry for the late reply. Was away over that period you initially wrote and just haven't caught up. I really don't have time to write something.   Hope you understand. Best Wishes, Peter
