9781846380853: Dan Graham: Rock My Religion (AFTERALL)

Dan Graham's Rock My Religion (1982--1984) is a video
essay populated by punk and rock performers (Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, Jerry Lee
Lewis, and Eddie Cochran) and historical figures (including Ann Lee, founder of the
Shakers). It represented a coming together of narrative voice-overs, singing and
shouting voices, and jarring sounds and overlaid texts that proposed a historical
genealogy of rock music and an ambitious thesis about the origins of North America's
popular culture. Because of its passionate embrace of underground music, its low-fi
aesthetics, interest in politics, and liberal approach to historiography, the video
has become a landmark work in the history of contemporary moving image and art; but
it has remained, possibly for the same reasons, one of Graham's least written about
works--underappreciated and possibly misunderstood by the critics who otherwise
celebrate him. This illustrated study of Graham's groundbreaking work fills that
critical gap. Kodwo Eshun examines Rock My Religion not only in
terms of contemporary art and Graham's wider body of work but also as part of the
broader culture of the time. He explores the relationship between Graham and New
York's underground music scene of the 1980s, connecting the artistic methods of the
No Wave bands--especially their group dynamics and relationship to the audience--and
Rock My Religion's treatment of working class identity and
culture.
