I believe it was the great artist Bruce Conner who said that they knew that any artist or poet who called themselves a "beatnik" was a fraud.

If you are interested in art made by people during the time period when the mass media in America hyped a "Beat" generation, then I suggest that you check out the catalog, published in 1995 or 1996, of the "Beat Culture" Whitney Musuem of Art exhibition.
