The Bodies That Were Not Ours: And Other Writings

Coco Fusco, Author Routledge $37.95 (284p) ISBN 978-0-415-25174-7
Taking on ""Captain Shit and Other Allegories of Black Stardom,"" Performance artist and cultural theorist Coco Fusco (English Is Broken Here) presents The Bodies That Were Not Ours and Other Writings, a series of meditations on and interviews with artists like Chris Offili (the captain himself) and Tracey Moffatt; dialogues on ""Stuff"" including wry instructions on how to rhumba (""Fant stico, OK let's add the shoulders!""); essays about her own performances; and ruminations on sex workers in Cuba and Mexican art in the age of free trade. Uniting this various collection is Fusco's provocative, sharp-tongued commentary on the relationship between art and the daily, bodily experiences of formerly colonized peoples. ( Feb.)
