About this title

Synopsis:

A powerful and evocative retrospective collection of an artist's life.

Flaring with immediacy and unbridled intensity, David Wojnarowicz's work embraces and illuminates the repressed, the unspeakable, and the intolerable. This collection of Wojnarowicz's paintings, photographs, and writings also includes essays by Nan Goldin, Kiki Smith, Fran Lebowitz, and Karen Finley, among others.

From the Back Cover:

Twentieth Anniversary Edition

David Wojnarowicz’s use of photography was remarkably innovative, as was his unprecedented way of addressing the AIDS crisis and issues of censorship, homophobia, and narrative. Brush Fires in the Social Landscape began in collaboration with the artist before his death in 1992 and first published inn 1994, engaged those who Wojnarowicz would refer to as his tribe or community. Now, on the twentieth anniversary of Brush Fires, when interest in the artist’s work has increased exponentially, Aperture has expanded and redesigned this seminal publication to be even more inclusive. It is the only book that features the breadth of Wojnarowicz’s work with photography. The contributors—from artist and writer friends to the lawyer who represented him in his case against Donald Wildmon and the American Family Association, to the next generation of artists who were influenced by Wojnarowicz’s sensibility—together offer a compelling, provocative understanding of the artist and his work.

Contributors include: Vince Aletti, Barry Blinderman, Cynthia Carr, David Cole, Shannon Ebner, Leonard Fink, Karen Finley, Nan Goldin, Félix Guattari, Wade Guyton, Melissa Harris, Elizabeth Hess, Tessa Hughes-Freeland, Peter Hujar, Fran Lebowitz, Lucy R. Lippard (introduction), Sylvère Lotringer, Carlo McCormick, Henrik Olesen, Wendy Olsoff, Adam Putnam, Tom Rauffenbart, James Romberger, Emily Roysdon, Marion Scemama, Gary Schneider, Amy Scholder, Kiki Smith, Andreas Sterzing, Zoe Strauss, Marvin J.
