Part of the acclaimed 'Documents of Contemporary Art' series of anthologies.

There has never been an anthology of artists' writings like Queer. It is an antidote to assimilation, a call for radical creativity, and a recipe for artistic revolution. - Richard Meyer, Professor, Department of Art & Art History, Stanford University

Rather than a book of queer theory for artists, this is a book of artists' queer tactics and infectious concepts. In the first such anthology to be centred on artists' writings, numerous conversations about queer practice are brought together from diverse individual, social and cultural contexts. Together these texts describe and examine the ways in which artists have used the concept of queer as a site of political and institutional critique, as a framework to develop new families and histories, as a spur to action, and as a basis from which to declare inassimilable difference.

Artists surveyed include: Nayland Blake, Gregg Bordowitz, Leigh Bowery, AA Bronson, AK Burns, Giuseppe Campuzano, Tee Corinne, Barbara DeGenevieve, Dyke Action Machine!, Elmgreen & Dragset, Nicole Eisenman, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Simon Fujiwara, Malik Gaines, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Gran Fury, Sunil Gupta, Hahn Thi Pham, Harmony Hammond, Sharon Hayes, Hudson, Roberto Jacoby, Derek Jarman, Isaac Julien, Mahmoud Khaled, Zoe Leonard, Lesbian Avengers, Catherine Lord, Ma Liuming, LTTR, Allyson Mitchell, Zanele Muholi, Carlos Motta, Ocana, Helio Oiticica, Catherine Opie, Marlon Riggs, Emily Roysdon, Prem Sahib, Assoto Saint, Tejal Shah, Amy Sillman, Jack Smith, AL Steiner, Wolfgang Tillmans, Toxic Titties, Danh Vo, David Wojnarowicz, Wu Tsang, Yan Xing, Las Yeguas del Apocalipsis, Akram Zaatari and Sergio Zevallos
