The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Cynthia Carr talks about the controversial artist David Wojnarowicz, whose artwork made headlines in 2010 when the National Portrait Gallery in Washington responded to responded to protests from the Catholic League and censored an excerpt of his short film, “A Fire in My Belly.” Carr’s biography Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz is a close look at the man who became one of the most important voices of his generation, from his unhappy childhood to his formative role in the time in New York's East Village to his death from AIDS in 1992 at the age of 37.
