The complete Bill Levy archive: 'SUCK'

Bill Levy Collection
“Suck was sexual revolution, wasn’t it? No, no, no, Suck was a magazine of art and literature with sex as its theme.” Anyway, the IISH staff was very keen on collecting material created by Bill Levy and in October 1974 a first transfer to the Institute was made. Finally in the summer of 2018 Susan Janssen and Bill Levy hand over all the remaining archival material of Suck, The Wet Dreams Film Festivals, and The Virgin Sperm Dancer. In 2019 fifty years after the first issue of Suck, the complete archive will be accessible.
