Before Pictures: Juliane Rebentisch in conversation with Douglas Crimp at the Whitney Museum of American Art

Berlin-based philosopher Juliane Rebentisch visits New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art to discuss Before Pictures with its author. In this exchange, Crimp reflects on his first decade in New York City, from 1967 to 1977, and his endeavor to “weave together stories of the two cultures that were most important in my life at the time—gay liberation and the art that came to be called postmodernist.” Hosted by the Whitney Museum of American Art.
