Daniel Shea talks about his new book 43–35 10th Street, a book that moves us from the end and edges of built community to its inner-city nascence. Shea, acutely aware of his own role within the operation of neoliberalism, is based within the neighborhood of MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, where he has observed the rapacious processes of recent real estate development. An essay by Walter Benn Michaels in 43–35 10th Street pulls apart the stratifications of Shea’s images, articulating political subjects that roil beneath overtly neutral surfaces or are caught between their layers.
Presented by Kodoji Press at NYABF on September 23, 2018.
