Arthur Cravan est vivant! (encore)


Well, look who’s back. Again.

Swiss-born boxer/poet/shit-stirrer Arthur Cravan is the subject of the latest edition of Bernard-Henri Lévy’s magazine La Règle du jeu. Cravan, who embarked from the coast of Mexico in 1918 and was (let’s not kid ourselves) never seen again, has had more comebacks than Cher. The title of the issue – “Arthur Cravan est vivant!” – has become an article of faith, professed over and over by those for whom Cravan’s myth can never be exhausted.

The issue is being launched tonight in Paris, with a “soirée de projection et débat“.
