Everybody Loves Nothing by Steve Reinke

Book Description

Artist and writer Steve Reinke is best know for his video work, an acerbic oeuvre that spans over a decade and includes his most famous piece, The Hundred Videos, literally a hundred short videos in which he explores the myriad permutations of identity, sexuality and art. The titles of his videos -- In the Realm of Perpetual Embarrassment, Sad Disco Fantasia, How Photographs Are Stored in the Brain are some examples -- encapsulate the tenor of Reinke's work: deadpan, self-deprecating, personal and always funny. Composed of original and found footage (from home movies, training films, porn flicks), the videos are typically diaristic, often philosophical, even elegaic. The writing itself is extremely well-crafted, possessing a wit and intelligence that translated well to the page; what seems improvisatory on screen is in fact very polished and precise prose. Everybody Loves Nothing contains Reinke's scripts from 1996 to the present, accompanied by numerous illustrative stills. An extensive interview with filmmaker Mike Holboom provides a broad overview of Reinke's career, themes and ambitions. Introduction by Lisa Steele, artistic director of Vtape.

Shimmering Beast by Steve Reinke Shimmering Beast, Paperback (May 2012)

With hybrids of criticism, fiction, and personal essays, this title features chapters that take on another's work, while reinterpreting the role of the critic - as supplicant, as cannibal, as skeptic.

Blast Counterblast by Steve Reinke Blast Counterblast, Paperback (March 2012)

An examination of the way intellectuals interact - through influence, argumentation, and criticism. Taking McLuhan and Lewis as starting points, this title includes essays that develop and push the ideas presented in both "Blast" and "Counterblast". It includes the writings of Maria Fusco, Michael Hoolboom, My Barbarian, and Ryan Trecartin.
