Is it My Body? Selected Texts
Ranging from neo-conceptual artworks to cultural analyses, the writings collected in this new title from the popular Institut für Kunstkritik series chart Kim Gordon’s trajectory from art student to cofounder of the influential rock group Sonic Youth. Furthermore, they are compelling for their contribution to the discourse surrounding art, architecture, film, fashion and rock music that catalyzed art scenes from Los Angeles to Cologne at the end of the 20th century. A graduate of the Otis College of Art and Design, Gordon has curated exhibitions or shown her own work at several New York art galleries, including the 2013 show Design Office with Kim Gordon at White Columns. Gordon casts a critical eye on current trends in contemporary art, whether the revival of Pop Art strategies, the persistence of formalist modernism or the vicissitudes of institutional critique.
