GIVE UP ART
Give Up Art is the first collected anthology of Belfast-born writer Maria Fusco (born 1972).
Operating across the genres of fiction, criticism and theory, Fusco’s work has helped forge a contemporary space for critical art writing in the UK and beyond. This interdisciplinary mode allows her to “write through the art object,” collapsing her art and writing practice. Give Up Art brings together nearly two dozen essays, reviews and smaller pieces published between 2005 and 2015 as well as interviews with Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Kraus and Paul Winstanley. This is the second book by Maria Fusco published by New Documents, following the 2013 publication of With A Bao A Qu Reading When Attitudes Become Form.
