QUEER THEORY TEXTS. Cruising Utopia by Jose Esteban Munoz

“José Esteban Muñoz recalls the past that is queer guidance in presaging its future. He considers the job of seminal musicians and authors such as for example Andy Warhol, LeRoi Jones, Frank O’Hara, Ray Johnson, Fred Herko, Samuel Delany, and Elizabeth Bishop, alongside modern performance and visual performers like Dynasty Handbag, My Barbarian, Luke Dowd, Tony simply, and Kevin McCarty so that you can decipher the anticipatory lighting of art as well as its uncanny ability to start windows to your future. A“not yet here” that critically engages pragmatic presentism in a startling repudiation of what the LGBT movement has held dear, Muñoz contends that queerness is instead a futurity bound phenomenon. Component manifesto, role love letter into the past together with future, Cruising Utopia argues that the right right right here and from now on are not sufficient and problems an urgent call when it comes to revivification associated with queer governmental imagination.”
