The Estrangement Principle
I’ve completed part one of an essay that thinks about the labeling of art as queer as well as what further bounties or problems might arise for art and queerness when they live together. If you would like to read part one (in full) email me: arielmalkagoldberg[at]gmail.com
A video of me reading excepts of the essay will be screened in San Francisco during June at the Best Revenge show.
A selection of the essay is in Aufgabe 11 available from Litmus Press.
