Brush Fires in the Social Landscape
Hardcover. 240 pages, 130 four-color and duotone images.
This collection of painter, photographer, writer, and activist, David Wojnarowicz's photography is keenly juxtaposed with his writing, as was his way of addressing the AIDS crisis and issues of censorship and homophobia. A wide range of contributors including artist and writer friends such as Karen Finley, Nan Goldin, Kiki Smith, Vince Aletti, C. Carr and Lucy R. Lippard, to David Cole, the lawyer who represented him in his case against Donald Wildmon and the American Family Association—together offer a compelling, provocative understanding of the artist and his work.

Featured in the Whitney's 2017 exhibition, Fast Forward: Paintings from the 1980's, Wojnarowicz's work directly addresses the activist struggles of the 1980's. This beautifully bound book features the breadth of Wojnarowicz's photography.
