You may know Thierry Müller from the infamous NWW (Nurse with Wound) List (1980), but his most well-known works do not appear under his own name.
Ilitch, Ruth, Crash, Arcane — none are “groups,” per se, but pseudonymous guises that allow Müller to experiment with previously uncharted genres or points-of-view.
