    About The Work

    “I was addicted to OxyContin for four years. I overdosed but I came back. I decided to make the personal political,” says Nan Goldin, who is known for her candid, intimate documents of some of the worst epidemics to devastate the US in recent history: HIV and opioid addiction. “I’ve started a group called P.A.I.N. (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now) to address the opioid crisis. We are a group of artists, activists and addicts that believe in direct action. We target the Sackler family, who manufactured and pushed OxyContin, through the museums and universities that carry their name. We speak for the 250,000 bodies that no longer can.”
