'Coco Fusco makes crucial interventions as both an artist and a writer that have advance debates in the study of postcoloniality, interculturalism and performance.'
Director, Documenta 11
'Groundbreaking ... Coco Fusco does it again, cutting through the current hype about the global era to show how art and politics really intertwine across countries and cultures.'
Deputy Director, Studio Museum, Harlem
'Coco Fusco is one of the most important artists/intellectuals we have.'
This volume gathers together Coco Fusco's finest writings since 1995, with critical introductory essays by Jean Fisher and Caroline Vercoe. Engaging and provocative, the essays, interviews, performance scripts and fotonovelas take readers on a tour of our current 'multicultural landscape'. Among other issues, Fusco explores sex tourism in Cuba as a barometer into a global economy; Frantz Fanon's theorisation of a metropolitan blackness; and artistic and net activist responses to the effect of free trade on the Mexican populace. Her satires, commentaries and sociological enquiries collapse boundaries and form a sustained meditation on how the forces of globalisation impact upon the making of art.
