Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Artist, activist and icon of Manhattan's East Village in the 1980s, David Wojnarowicz (1954-1992) worked in a wide range of media-from paintings to video to still photography to collage to rock and roll-emphasizing collaboration and community, and informed by his outrage against America's treatment of outsiders, in particular those suffering with AIDS. The volume's first part gathers 16 of cultural theorist Lotringer's interviews with Wojnarowicz's associates and intimates following his 1992 death, including prominent scenesters Carlo McCormick, Richard Kern, Bill Rice and Kiki Smith. Each interview is tagged, Web 2.0 style, with general subject headings-such as "The Pyramid Club," "ACT-UP" or "3 Teens Kill 4," Wojnarowicz's rock band-making for easy reference, but a bio for each interview subject might have proved more useful. Part two consists of three interviews with Wojnarowicz himself, conducted respectively by Lotringer, Wojnarowicz's close friend and photographer Nan Goldin, and the prosecuting attorney in a suit brought by Wojnarowicz against the American Family Association, who used his work in a pamphlet meant to discredit the NEA. Though a fascinating document, generously illustrated with artwork reproductions and photos from the era, this volume is less than definitive-there's no introduction to Wojnarowicz's life, nor to the artistic or political movements of the time-making it a work for those already immersed in the cultural history of the East Village.

Review

"In this book of mesmerizing interviews with the late artist and his friends and collaborators, breathless recollections of famous graffiti, the night the dancing almost caved in the floor of the attic at PS1, and who worked the door at the Mudd Club gradually paint the very finest brushstrokes of a neighborhood's impressionistic history." Erick Lyle San Francisco Bay Chronicle

Interviews with the artist, very interesting, and Sylvere Lotringer is always interesting. If your interested in art and the scene on the lower east side, this is definitive reading on an amazing time in art.
