Boris Lurie and Dietmar Kirves 1998 in Weimar-Buchenwald, photo by Sybille Wittmann, StuttgartDIETMAR KIRVES: We met us in the 70's to develope the NO!art movement. We put together the first NO!art anthology in the 80's. I was with you during 9/11 to prepare the NO!art and the Aesthetic of Doom Show. You supported my art studio work. I miss you and your creative controversial activities. Much success in the eternity. Your  voice will be always in my mind until we shall meet us again in the eternal hunting ground. NO!art goes on.

Die kalte Luft
drängt sich
durch diese ungehobelt Bretter-Spalten.
Weisst du
was philosophisch-so-gesprochen
Was Kälte ist?
--- Boris Lurie

Boris Lurie’s voice, image, authenticity, and wit stay with me, his art, poems and faxes to sooth me when I miss him. NO!art shall prevail.

ALDO TAMBELLINI: Remembering the many many times coming from Cambridge, MA, I stayed at your apartment on E 66th ST…the late evening & half of the nights, 2 artists talking about WWII-world politics-social issues-sometimes debating our beliefs in ART & yes, discussing the state of the ARTS-our long discussions on the phone-the many letters with clippings you sent me which led to even more discussions this old friend misses you. Aldo Tambellini

this poem for you, Boris:

the supersonic wind
blows creative thoughts
away from mental prisons to the sky
blowing past the planets
away throughout dark mysterious matter
echoing among galaxies
away where creative minds
burn their visions
with the energy of billions fiery stars

A Time Not to Forget

SIMON TAYLOR EXILED IN PARADISE (California): Boris, Boris... I found out about your departure yesterday. I hung out in your Sixth Street studio, a couple of dozen times, drinking vodka out of a broken coffee cup, until the wee hours of the morning. You were great company, always. Time well spent. Rest in peace, Boris. You deserve it.
All best, adieu, and take care. Simon Taylor
