As an artists’ book, Aftershow engages with the recent film installations of Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz. Installation shots, research material, scripts, and film stills give an insight into the artists’ investigation of performance in film and their dense net of references to experimental film, the history of photography, sound, and underground (drag) performances. The book’s title alludes to an interest in opaque events that are belated, left backstage or off-screen. A number of (fictitious) letters to friends and collaborators such as Sharon Hayes, Yvonne Rainer, Ginger Brooks-Takahashi, and Jack Smith place the work of Boudry & Lorenz in a context of debates around temporalities, activism, the archival, decolonizing practices, and queer histories.
Published following the exhibition “Patriarchal Poetry” at the Badischer Kunstverein, September 27– November 24, 2013.
