In this seventh collection of essays, performance activist and writer Guillermo Gómez-Peña, artistic director of San Francisco based company La Pocha Nostra, appraises the role of the artist in an intellectually repressive, post 9/11 mainstream society.
In a world where extreme identity' becomes the subject matter of the Jerry Springer Show, Gómez-Peña asks what is left for the artist whose critical practice investigates racial, cultural and sexual difference by an extensive examination of his own company's work.
Collaborative contributions by Rachel Rogers, Eduardo Mendieta, Lisa Wolford, Elaine Katzenberger, and Silvana Straw.
