Review:

"Tim Miller has made a career not only of making the personal political, but more important, of making the political personal. As a result, "1001 Beds" is not just a document of life as a performance artist, but a history of performance art; it is not just the story of a gay man, but an account of how being gay has changed."--David Bergman, series editor
"Performance artist Tim Miller has been a pioneering and inspiring figure for twenty-five years. Taking us into the heart of his very original work, "1001 Beds" shows Miller as an engaged and effective storyteller and provocateur. It will attract readers from a variety of constituencies and be wonderful for classes."--Lynn C. Miller, editor of "Voices Made Flesh"

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. If I continue to tour for another twenty years, as I have for the last twenty-one, I will end up sleeping in at least 1000 hotel beds in my lifetime. For maximum poetic oomph, let s say 1001 beds.They symbolize a life and art dedicated to reaching out toward folks from Bozeman to Tampa. A life and art that has traveled widely and, I believe, reached a couple hundred thousand people with my stories of queer life and love. For a quarter century, Tim Miller has worked at the intersection of performance, politics, and identity, using his personal experiences to create entertaining but pointed explorations of life as a gay American man - from the perils and joys of sex and relationships to the struggles of political disenfranchisement and artistic censorship. This intimate autobiographical collage of Miller s professional and personal life reveals one of the celebrated creators of a crucial contemporary art form and a tireless advocate for the American dream of political equality for all citizens. Here we have the most complete Miller yet - a raucous collection of his performance scripts, essays, interviews, journal entries, and photographs, as well as his most recent stage piece Us . This volume brings together the personal, communal, and national political strands that interweave through his work from its beginnings and ultimately define Miller s place as a contemporary artist, activist, and gay man.
