Between Dog and Wolf
Essays on Art & Politics
David Levi Strauss
Second edition, with Prolegomenon by Peter Lamborn Wilson

In his first collection of essays, David Levi Strauss addresses the always conflicted relation between aesthetics and politics by concentrating on specific instances - from allopathic art to Desert Storm propaganda, from Columbus's legacy to Robert Smithson's prophesies, and from new art in post-Soviet Russia to public art in the United States - and by focusing on the work of artists as various as Grunewald, Jean Genet, Cindy Sherman, Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol, Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Mizonville, Carolee Schneemann, Andrei Monastyrsky, and Daniel Joseph Martinez.

"We can learn with him. He knows how to resist, he's a good guide across frontiers, he stays calm, he hates the New World Order and its no-future. Critic as coyote. Listen with him!" - John Berger

"An uncommon assertion of cultural critique and topical apercus, ranging from chronic pain in our era to Columbus's discovery of the Third World. David Levi Strauss offers the interpretive inflection of his San Francisco years." - Avital Ronell

"In these fierce and lyrical essays, David Levi Strauss calls for an art - and implicitly for an approach to art writing - that is passionately experiential, intellectually grounded, and politically fearless. Anyone looking for a space of cultural possibility in this moment of complicity and collusion should start here." - Michael Brenson
