Invited as a researcher, Gregg Bordowitz posed himself a guiding question: “Is poetics a relevant term for current art-making, and if so how?” With this incisive query, Bordowitz brings to light insights gleaned over three decades of work across video media, art criticism, coalition-based AIDS activism, poetry, and pedagogic practice, while revisiting the concerns in his own work for freedom, autonomy, and self-determination. The publication assembles poetry, epistolary, and critical texts written by Bordowitz from 2013–14. In addition, it includes poetry and essays by Robert Duncan, a psychoanalytic text by Wilfred Bion, and poetry by Essex Hemphill and Ari Banias.
