Shock Treatment
by Karen Finley
Publisher's Description
Karen Finley is a well known performance artist who has recently been refused a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the aftermath of the Mapplethorpe fiasco. This book includes several of her better known pieces each accompanied by her own evocative drawings. "Obscenity is Finley's subject--not four letter words but the emotion propelling them. Her monologues expose unspeakable acts and unforgivable feelings, deconstructing relationships into the most primal urges"--C. Carr, The Villiage Voice
