Collecting Baudrillard

“[A]ny collection comprises a succession of items, but the last in the set is the person of the collector” (Jean Baudrillard)

My Baudrillard collection has been assembled over the past 25 years. It contains many pieces sourced from both helpful people worldwide and from innumerable bookshops and libraries in the 100+ countries I have been lucky enough to visit. I am always trying to find and obtain new material(s) by and on Baudrillard for my ongoing and numerable Baudrillard-related research projects.

Please contact me if you know about or have any material(s) of any kind by or on Baudrillard which you think I might not know about. I may be able to cite, quote, or even include/reprint any new material you provide or alert me to in a book or other publication to make that material available to the worldwide Baudrillard Studies community.

I am interested in all material(s) in any language: books, articles, translations, interviews, newspaper and magazine clips/items/articles, photographs by or of Baudrillard, flyers, adverts, catalogues, recordings (audio and/or visual), music, songs, poems, personal memories … everything whether it is an original copy, a copy, or even a copy of a copy!
