Ulises Carrión (1941-1989) came to live in Amsterdam in 1970. He presented himself as a poet, writer, artist and philosopher. He was connected to the In-Out Center, an artists' initiative run by international artists in Amsterdam. After the closure of In-Out Center in 1975 he opened Other Books and So, an unconventional bookstore and gallery, that was known as an international distributor of artists' books and Mail Art. After Other Books and So, he worked on the development of projects that he described as "cultural strategies", including ‘Gossip, scandal and good manners’ and ‘Lilia Prado Superstar Filmfestival’ at De Appel.
