Throwing the Body into the Fight: a Portrait of Raimund Hoghe is the first English language publication dedicated to the choreographer and performance maker Raimund Hoghe (Germany). Curated and edited by Mary Kate Connolly, the publication operates as a collage, drawing together a variety of international voices to create a fragmented portrait of the artist.
Illustrated throughout with a rich collection of archival images by photographer Rosa Frank, Throwing the Body into the Fight also features a conversation with Raimund Hoghe which punctuates the book, offering insights into his creative process and that of his artistic collaborators, Luca Giacomo Schulte and Rosa Frank.

Pleading in the Blood: The Art and Performances of Ron Athey (paperback edition) edited by Dominic Johnson explores the life and work of Ron Athey, an iconic figure in contemporary art and performance. In his frequently bloody portrayals of life, death, crisis, and fortitude in the time of AIDS, Athey calls into question the limits of artistic practice. These limits enable Athey to explore key themes including gender, sexuality, radical sex, queer activism, postpunk and industrial culture, tattooing and body modification, ritual, and religion.
Pleading in the Blood includes three newly commissioned essays on different aspects of Athey's work and a selection of shorter texts from invited artists and scholars. The book also includes Athey's own writings, including new pieces and hard-to-find archival texts.
