By AA Bronson.
Published by Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
Negative Thoughts is AA Bronson's first major project outside of the context of General Idea, the artist collective which he co-founded with Jorge Zontal and Felix Partz. From 1986 until the deaths of Zontal and Partz in 1994, General Idea focused on addressing the AIDS crisis. The group became known for their temporary public artworks, which used existing forms of communication and distribution, such as billboards, magazines, subway posters, television, and the Internet. The exhibition documented here combines three works by General Idea along with new works of Bronson's as a meditation on the themes of life and death in the age of AIDS. This accompanying catalogue, designed both to stand on its own and to extend the exhibition to a wider audience, combines an extended memoir with approximately 50 photographs of the artist and his friends to form an autobiographical reflection on Bronson's relation to death, AIDS, and life beyond AIDS.
