Part of the acclaimed series of anthologies which document major themes and ideas in contemporary art.

"[...] There has never been an anthology of artists' writings like Queer. It is an antidote to assimilation, a call for radical creativity, and a recipe for artistic revolution."
(Richard Meyer, Professor, Department of Art & Art History, Stanford University)
Rather than a book of queer theory for artists, this is a book of artists’ queer tactics and infectious concepts. In the first such anthology to be centred on artists’ writings, numerous conversations about queer practice are brought together from diverse individual, social and cultural contexts. Together these texts describe and examine the ways in which artists have used the concept of queer as a site of political and institutional critique, as a framework to develop new families and histories, as a spur to action, and as a basis from which to declare inassimilable difference.
