While editing the stories in ‘Live Through This”, writer and editor Sabrina Chap noticed a series of themes inherent in the essays. Shame, political consciousness, isolation, power versus control: these are just some of the topics that are inherent in anyone’s self-destructive journey.

This multi-media lecture is an incredible introduction to the book and the themes that appear in between the lines of each artists’ story. It consists of short readings, a 45 minute multi-media lecture, and a Q&A that always prompts an interesting dialogue.

From 8:30-9pm, Sabrina will be available to sign your book.

About the book:

Live Through This – On Creativity and Self-Destruction
In a collection of original stories, essays, artwork, and photography, Nan Goldin, Eileen Myles, be! hooks, and other cutting-edge artists explore their use of art to survive madness, abuse, incest, depression, and the impulse toward self-destruction manifest in eating disorders, cutting, addiction, and contemplation of suicide. The book confronts the
brutality many women and girls encounter in the world around them, and bravely takes as its subject the often misunderstood violence they at times inflict upon themselves.
