YR 2006 SN 1584350350 9781584350354 AB "In the wake of David Wojnarowicz's death, critic and cultural theorist Sylvere Lotringer undertook to track down all of Wojnarowicz's friends and former collaborators. Lotringer wanted to talk not just about David, but about the East Village cultural scene they'd created. Some - like Nan Goldin and Kiki Smith - had become luminaries in the international art world. Others - like Bill Rice, Marguerite Van Cook, and Steve Brown - remained local. Through their accounts, the protagonists of the East Village art scene reclaim their history, on their own terms. Illustrated with photographs and artworks by Gary Azon, Nan Goldin, James Romberger, Peter Hujar, Richard Kern, Marion Scemama, Andreas Sterzing, Tommy Turner and David Wojanarowicz, Five or Six Years tears open art history's myth of the single Great Artist to reveal Wojnarowicz's real life, and the real lives surrounding him."--BOOK JACKET.
