Daniel Schumann: International OrangeDaniel Schumann: International Orange

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Daniel Schumann, Christof Kerber.

In 2011, having been awarded a Fulbright, German photographer Daniel Schumann (born 1981) moved to San Francisco to start a masters degree in photography. He was immediately taken by the city, and fell in love with the diversity and openness of its inhabitants. In International Orange, Schumann portrays same-sex families and couples living and working in San Francisco. The work originated from the artist’s desire to express the importance of the metropolis for the gay rights movement, while also examining the theme of family from a new perspective--an examination he had already begun in his previous book, Princesses and Football Stars. Through his portraits, Schumann’s project reveals the remarkable ease with which heterosexual and homosexual families live together and coexist in San Francisco. International Orange is a declaration of love for the city, its social freedom and its citizens.

Gender Performance in Photography

Published by Guggenheim Museum Publications.
Edited by Jennifer Blessing. Essays by Nancy Spector, Judith Halberstam, Carole-Anne Tyler and Sarah Wilson.

The Guggenheim's classic study of photo-based artworks that question gender identity is back in print at last. This important volume, whose title combines Gertrude Stein's famous motto, "Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose," with the name of Marcel Duchamp's feminine alter ego, Rrose Selavy, features portraits, self-portraits and photomontages in which the gender of the subject is highlighted through performance for the camera or through technical manipulation of the image. In many of the works, photography's strong aura of realism and objectivity promotes a fantasy of total gender transformation. In other pieces, the photographic representation articulates an incongruity between the posing body and its assumed costume. Features work by Cecil Beaton, Brassa‘, Claude Cahun, Marcel Duchamp, Hannah Hàch, Man Ray, Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Nan Goldin, Lyle Ashton Harris, Robert Mapplethorpe, Annette Messager, Yasumasa Morimura, Catherine Opie, Lucas Samaras, Cindy Sherman, Inez van Lamsweerde and Andy Warhol.

Changing Difference: Queer Politics and Shifting IdentitiesChanging Difference: Queer Politics and Shifting Identities

Peter Hujar, Mark Morrisroe, Jack Smith

Published by Silvana Editorale.
Text by Lorenzo Fusi, Marco Pierini, Bill Arning, Fiona Johnstone.

Peter Hujar (1934–1987), Mark Morrisroe (1959–1989) and Jack Smith (1932–1989) all charted that uncertain territory between the subversion and the assimilation of difference, exploring how non-mainstream sexuality and gender has been experienced and perceived over the decades. Their works follow a complex parable, from the 60s right up to the end of the 80s, underlining the risks inherent in mixing art and life, as well as formal research and political struggles. At times sociological, at others highly personal, this volume compares and juxtaposes the oeuvres of these three pioneers of queer American visual art, taking the reader along an itinerary ranging from the banal to the elegiac, from the trashy to the refined, and from life to death, moving through both the various genders (male, female and transgender) and sexual orientations (heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality), showing how these have been recounted through both underground and mainstream culture.

Dorothy Iannone: Censorship and the Irrepressible Drive Toward Love and DivinityDorothy Iannone: Censorship and the Irrepressible Drive Toward Love and Divinity

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Heike Munder. Text by Maria Elena Buszek, Dorothy Iannone, Heike Munder.

Since the early 1960s, Dorothy Iannone (born 1933) has occupied herself with the attempt to represent "ecstatic unity"—"the union of gender, feeling and pleasure," as she describes it—resulting in a body of frequently autobiographical work encompassing painting, drawing, collage, objects and publications. This volume examines the censorship of Iannone's work, using her 1970 artist's book The Story of Bern as a starting point. Iannone's works were removed from an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern in 1969, after the museum director demanded that the genitals in her paintings be covered. Iannone responded with The Story of Bern, reclaiming her work from the controversies surrounding it by making her perspective public. In a nod to the censorship of Iannone's work, the explicit image on the cover of this book is hidden by a belly band.

MujercitosMujercitos

Published by RM.
Edited and with text by Susana Vargas. Foreword by Cuauhtémoc Medina.

The results of detailed research from Susana Vargas and art critic Cuauhtémoc Medina, Mujercitos gathers photographs of men dressed as women featured in the periodical Alarma!, known as a nota roja or "red page" newspaper for its bloody content, from the 1960s to the 1980s. This volume collects a selection of key Mexican newsprint tearsheets, with the original layout and typography, each of which represents a mujercito, or "effeminate man," in a highly sexualized, objectified way. Vargas' contextualizing research explores the ways in which these photographs, printed in sensationalistic "true-crime" newspapers, participate in the larger national imaginary of non-normative sexualities in Mexico. In studying these representations of mujercitos, Vargas further traces Anglo-North American theories of gender/sex performativity onto Mexican society, only to discover the multitude of ways in which the relation between gender, sex, sexual orientation and desire is permeated with concerns of race and class in Mexican culture.

Eve Fowler: HustlersEve Fowler: Hustlers

Published by Capricious.
Text by Kevin Killian.

Hustlers gathers a photographic series taken by Los Angeles-based artist Eve Fowler (born 1964) on the streets of the West Village in New York and Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles between 1993 and 1998. Drawing on her background in both journalism and photography, Fowler explores queerness and social "otherness." Here, her untitled, intimate images lay bare the ambiguities of identity, class, sexuality and gender--all of which combine to lend the figure of the hustler a semi-dangerous allure, and the ambiguous attractions of the social outlaw. Stark and unencumbered by typical compositional elements or dramatic lighting, Fowler's subjects demand direct consideration, forcing the viewer to confront in a single face both masculine vulnerability and intrepidity. Accompanying this collection is an essay by Kevin Killian, an award-winning American poet, author and playwright well known for his contributions to LGBT literature.

Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual DependencyNan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

Published by Aperture.
Edited by Marvin Heiferman, Mark Holborn, Suzanne Fletcher. Text by Nan Goldin.

First published in 1986, Nan Goldin’s The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggles for intimacy and understanding among the friends and lovers whom Goldin describes as her “tribe.” These photographs described a lifestyle that was visceral, charged and seething with a raw appetite for living, and the book soon became the swan song for an era that reached its peak in the early 1980s. Twenty-five years later, Goldin’s lush color photography and candid style still demand that the viewer encounter their profound intensity head-on. As she writes: “Real memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound and physical presence, the density and flavor of life.” Through an accurate and detailed record of Goldin’s life, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency records a personal odyssey as well as a more universal understanding of the different languages men and women speak. The book’s influence on photography and other aesthetic realms has continued to grow, making it a classic of contemporary photography. This anniversary edition features all-new image separations produced using state-of-the-art technologies and specially prepared reproduction files, which offer a lush, immersive experience of this touchstone monograph.
Nan Goldin was born in Washington, D.C., in 1953, and grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts. Her first solo show was held in Boston in 1973. She moved to New York in 1979, where she began documenting the city’s gay and transvestite scenes and developed the informal snapshot aesthetic for which she is celebrated today. Goldin was the 2007 recipient of the Hasselblad Award.
