Library Shelf Location 18.BOUD
Publication Date 2016

This publication documents the major film installation I Want (2015) by collaborative artists Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz. The double-projection film installation is based on a script that borrows texts from American punk-poet Kathy Acker, as well as chats and materials by convicted whistle-blower Chelsea Manning that speak of her reasons for revealing nearly one million secret military and diplomatic documents through WikiLeaks, at the same time exposing her transgender identity to her superiors. Through poetic gestures of appropriation and recombination, Boudry and Lorenz examine issues around gender, sexuality, the performance of identity, and the nature of collaboration.
