Index: Al Ackerman
Al Blaster Ackerman has been tirelessly active artistically since the early 1970s; he mainly did Mail Art and performances, but also wrote prose and poetry. A lot of his works take the form of ferocious but deadpan humor executed using a bewildering variety of pseudonyms. They had been published in magazines all around the world, especially in John M. Bennett’s Lost & Found Times.
Al Blaster Ackerman is especially known for his pen and ink line drawings and artistamps. He likes to collaborate with others like Bennett and Darlene Altschul. In 2005 he did the LP I Am Drunk (EHSE Label) with recordings of his spoken performances.
Ackerman passed away on March 17, 2013.
