    About The Work

    David Wojnarowicz in this work confronts and denounces violence against members of the LGBT community. Printed in collaboration with the Lower East Side literary magazine Between C & D.

    Cynthia Carr discusses this poster in her biography, Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz. She relates the episode of when Wojnarowicz became estranged from collaborator Marion Scemama during the production of this piece and inked out her name on the copies of the poster in his possession. This is a copy from his estate.

    Between C & D (1983–1990) was a Lower East Side quarterly literary magazine edited by Joel Rose and Carherine Texier. Though a geographical reference from New York City, “Between C & D” has also been suggested to mean “between coke and dope”, giving an indication of the transgressive content and ethos. Its actual tagline was “Sex. Drugs. Danger. Violence. Computers.” The magazine itself was printed on fanfold computer paper, sold in a plastic bag, and featured original artwork on each binding.

    Contributors included Kathy Acker, Dennis Cooper, Gary Indiana, Tama Janowitz, Lynn Tillman, and David Wojnarowicz.

    The magazine is discussed in-depth in Brandon Stosuy’s Up Is Up, But So Is Down: New York’s Downtown Literary Scene, 1974-1992 (NYU Press, 2006).
