Luther Blissett Collective

ADDPMP015

Nom de plume, pseudonym, or multiple-use name informally adopted by hundreds of artists and activists all over Europe and the Americas. The name first appeared in Bologna in 1994, when multiple cultural activists used it to author their urban and media performances, which were often humorous, political pranks. The pseudonym was borrowed from real-life Luther Blissett, based purely on comic value of the name, who was a notable soccer player for AC Milan and England in the 80s. In December ’99, the Italian activists responsible for spreading the pseudonym decided to discontinue its use by committing symbolic ritual suicide. The historical novel Q (1999), which follows the journey of a religious radical in 16th century Europe, was written by the collective behind Luther Blissett. Five of the authors went on to form the writers collective “Wu Ming.”
