The AIDS Crisis Is Ridiculous and Other Writings, 1986-2003
By Gregg Bordowitz

SIGNED BY GREGG BORDOWITZ

Gregg Bordowitz has, for the most part, left his earliest writings unchanged to preserve “both the youthful exuberance and the palpable sense of fear” that swarmed the early days of the AIDS crisis. Since these works, Bordowitz’s writing has leaned into the experimental and often merged fiction and fact– he has fully welcomed his writing practice into his art practice. This collection of essays is accompanied by stills from discussed works, including films by Martha Rosler, Zoe Leonard, and the collective DIVA TV. The title essay ‘The AID Crisis is Ridiculous,’originally published in 1993, is written in memory of artist and art historian Craig Owens and is inspired by the art/writing practices of Charles Ludlam, Robert Smithson, and Yvonne Rainer.
