Genesis p-orridge looking for an intern circa late 2001

I missed this originally but would have done it in a second!

posted on the offiial site circa late 2001


The workload here in New York has become impossible for me to keep up with. I spend several hours a day simply doing adminstration and the most boring of business aspects of all our projects. The hidden amount of work needed to set up Thee Majesty gigs; catalogue 35 years of archives and publications; literally thousands of photographs and slides; original artworks; tape archives; exhibitions; writing and mundane daily L-if-E is unbelievable. I get fantastic assistance from Bengala, Miss Jacqui, Brian Damage, and others in my special family. Nevertheless the ratio of T.I.M.E. I get to spend making new work, writing new songs, and creating new thoughts has shrunk to an alarming degree in terms of what could happen. After a lot of thought I have decided to try what my dear friend DOUGLAS RUSHKOFF (check his here) suggested. So I am looking for an intern to come in to work 2-3 days a week in our office. Any applicants will be reviewed and short-listed by Miss Jacqui. The resulting short-list of people will be interviewed by her and then a decision will be made.
