Last spring Goldberg completed part one of “The Estrangement Principle”, which thinks about both the problems and productive aspects of labeling art as queer. Goldberg solicited response from readers after mailing 75 copies of the essay. They will revisit the ideas of part one alongside a slideshow of relevant photographs, which will be followed by a discussion.
