THE RAT BASTARD PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION

 

THE RAT BASTARD PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION, an underground arts association, was founded by Bruce Conner in 1959 in San Francisco, three years after the Allen Ginsberg's poem "Howl" and its public lecture, two years after the Jack Kerouac's "On the Road". The San Francisco "Bay Area" became the place where a new generation of writers, painters and musicians rebelled against the "American academicians", the place where the Beat Generation was born. The society marginalized violently the new culture and its upholders. In this hostile context, in which the underground movement were rejected and marginalized, treated like rats, Bruce Conner forged the name of Rat Bastard Protective Association, coined after the name of the "Scavengers Protective Society", the San Francisco garbage collectors company and from the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB, like the Rat Bastard's RBP). The members of this informal group were, besides Bruce Conner, Manuel Neri, Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo, Wally Hedrick, Wallace Berman, Jess Collins, George Herms, Michael McClure, LG Williams
