Talking With Guggenheim Artist Paul Chan About Fame, Failure, Politics

Barbara Pollack at the New York Observer interviews Paul Chan about his show at the Guggenheim Museum and the New Lovers series. She writes, "Chan connects the exploration of sexuality in the current series of books published by Badlands with such highly charged issues as campus rape and the Bill Cosby scandal. 'An issue close to my heart is that different generations have different ways of talking about what is pleasure and what is pleasing to them and that is very political,' he said. To Chan, publishing is the ultimate work of public art." Read the rest at the Observer.
