Book Overview

'An elegantly disciplined page turner, Bound together interweaves the various cultures of leather sex and the archive with solid research, sly humor, and patient interpretation. Campbell's sections on a selected group of contemporary and modern artists are particularly insightful.' Catherine Lord, Professor Emerita, Department of Art, UC Irvine 'Sex is good to think with, but Andy Campbell's leathersex is even better. This exuberant, challenging, and generously illustrated study explores the role of BDSM in visual and material art, performance and archival practice--while, in the process, becoming its own sexual archive.' Professor Barry Reay, author of New York Hustlers and Sex in the Archives Long ignored by art history and LGBTQ studies, the visual and material creations of leather communities in the United States are both abundant and community-focused. Bound together uncovers the archives that house these creations and explores how contemporary artists such as Patrick Staff, A. K. Burns, and A. L. Steiner have mined them to develop a queer politics of the present. Accessibly written and illustrated with almost a hundred images, the book is essential reading for anyone engaged with LGBTQ history and visual culture.
