“Providing a varied and extensive collection of texts by and about Nauman's work, this anthology opens many doors into reading the layers upon layers of this artist's ironic tragi-comedies... With its focus on Nauman from so many perspectives and its concentration on his performance and new media aspects, this book provides meaningful and extensive resources for both admirers and scholars... In the end, it sets a bountiful theoretical, historical, aesthetic, ethical, and critical context for responding to Nauman's productions.” – Brian Bergen-Aurand, Rain Taxi
