Scope and Content Note

This collection contains clippings, fliers, graphic art, periodicals, posters, photographs, programs and other printed ephemera that document Morea and Tambellini's activities both during and before the founding of Black Mask, and the activity of the Motherfuckers. There is also correspondence and other material relating to the Situationist International, several annotated issues of the Rebel Worker (Industrial Workers of the World), and correspondence and other materials created or collected by donor Max Blechman that also pertain to anarchism and its relationship to the arts.


Organized into eight series: I, Aldo Tambelini and Ben Morea in the pre-Black Mask Period; II, Black Mask, 1966-1968; II, Up Against the Wall Motherfucker, 1968-1971; IV, Publications of groups in NY and London connected or relevant to Ben Morea and the Up Against the Wall Motherfucker "affinity groups," 1968-1971; V, Situationist International Correspondence; VI, Rebel Worker (Annotated Issues); VII, Max Blechman: Other Anarchy Related Materials; VIII, Oversize Materials.

Each series is arranged alphabetically, except for series V and VI, which are arranged chronologically.
