The case studies featured here are intended to demonstrate the broad range of Wojnarowicz's work, the varied types of collaborations he engaged in, the iterative nature of his working process, and the challenges the work presents with respect to questions of conservation, display, and authorship. Each case addresses a single work in depth, tracing its production and reception along with its connections to other works and collaborators. Wojnarowicz's work is very rarely bounded in a single object; these pages demonstrate that any given work is the accumulation of relationships between people, locations, experiences and objects. Extensive hyperlinks throughout these pages connect to resources throughout this site.
These case studies draw on research in the David Wojnarowicz Papers at Fales Library and elsewhere. We invite further case studies from future contributors to the site; please see “Future Research projects” [hyperlink TBD] for more information.
