A Frightful Leap into Darkness w/ Jack Halberstam

“In what follows, I track a strand of avant-garde aesthetic production that gathers under the heading of “auto-destructive art,” and that, in its attention to chaos, risk and intensity, makes clear some of the stakes in an investment in wildness. I also use this tradition of violent and risky art practices in order to situate trans artist Heather Cassils‘ recent works: Becoming an Image (2012-2015) and Inextinguishable Fire (2014-2015).”
