The Estrangement Principle Reviewed in The Brooklyn Rail

The Estrangement Principle Reviewed in The Brooklyn Rail

The Estrangement Principle by Ariel Goldberg was just reviewed in The Brookly Rail! 

Here's an excerpt that highlights Goldberg's memory of their own queer art sociality experiences:

 "Goldberg’s essay examines the category of “queer art” across a corpus of writing and visual art since the 1970s, examining the term as, among other uses, a marketing strategy, a utopian ideal, and an alibi for oppression similar to that found in straight institutions. In their quest to understand what makes something queer, and to consider whether or not that categorization is deserved, Goldberg became a roving reporter of the term, turning up at panels, reading series, film series, art exhibitions, and at archives and social gatherings that all claim the label."
