Social Margins: An Assembly in Text

As part of the Mt. Analogue class Fate is Kind we are reading Action Around the Edges, an excerpt from curator and critic Douglas Crimp’s critical memoir, Before Picture. This essay, read in tandem with text from Situationist International, looks at the intersection between interventionist art practices, namely that of Gordon Matta Clark and his piece Days End – a structural intervention of a derelict warehouse pier on NYC’s Hudson River – and the historical legacy and politics surrounding the gay cruising scene of the same era around the Hudson piers.
