In the Shadow of Forward Motion
David Wojnarowicz

Primary Information, 2020  |  First edition thus
Softcover, 54 pages, 215 x 280 mm
Condition: New
Originally published in 1989, David Wojnarowicz’s In the Shadow of Forward Motion has garnered a legendary status despite its meager print run of just 50 copies. The zine features Wojnarowicz’s  now-iconic mixed media works juxtaposed with journal entries and other texts that examine historical and global mechanisms of power symbolized through the technology of their times.
The artist’s experience living with HIV is a constant subject of the work, used to shed light on the political and social structures perpetuating discrimination against not only himself, but against women and people of color, who faced additional barriers in their efforts to receive treatment for the illness. Rooted in the maelstrom of 1980s art, politics, religion and civil rights, the book provides a startling glimpse into an American culture that hasn’t yet been left behind.
