Weight of the Earth: The Tape Journals of David Wojnarowicz

Notes

At the height of the AIDS epidemic, Wojnarowicz began keeping audio journals, returning to a practice he'd begun in his youth. The publication presents transcripts of these tapes, documenting the artist's turbulent attempts to understand his anxieties and passions, and tracking his thoughts as they develop in real time.
