In the early 1990s, Sylvère Lotringer conducted an incredible number of interviews with the collaborators and friends of David Wojnarowicz. The restlessness of Wojnarowicz’s mind and practice is reflected in these interviews – his filmmaking, painting, performance, and music all explored through the individuals he worked with. Includes interviews with Julia Scher, Richard Kern, Ben Neill, Kiki Smith, Nan Goldin, Marguerite van Cook, and others, as well as a lengthy, wide-ranging interview with Wojnarowicz from 1991. 220 pages, color images throughout.
“In the wake of David Wojnarowicz’s death, critic and cultural theorist Sylvère Lotringer undertook to track down all of Wojnarowicz’s friends and former collaborators.
