Description - Queer Looks by Martha Gever
Queer Looks is a collection of writing by video artists, filmmakers and critics which explores the recent explosion of lesbian and gay independent media culture. A compelling compilation of artists' statements and critical theory, producer interviews and image-text works, this anthology demonstrates the vitality of queer artists under attack and fighting back. Each maker and writer deploys a surprising array of techniques and tactics, negotiating the difficult terrain between street pragmatism and theoretical inquiry. From guerilla Super-8 in Manila to AIDS video activism in New York; from dyke pirate movies in Berlin to London meditations on black gay life; from safer sex shorts to punk girl porn, Queer Looks zooms in on this very queer place in media culture, revealing a wealth of strategies, a plurality of aesthetics, and an artillery of resistances.
