Chris Kraus: Multiple Perspectives

22 May 2017

Chris Kraus is author of I Love DickAliens and Anorexia, and the recently re-released Torpor. The New Yorker says this of her novels: 'Taken together, Kraus’s books summon “contradictory, multiple perspectives” … they approach a recurring consciousness from different angles, dip into the trajectory of a life at different moments.’ The moments, the emotion and the perspectives explored through and across her writing include allusion and reflection on a migrant life in Wellington, where she graduated from Victoria University and had an early career as a journalist at the Sunday Times and Evening Post before leaving for New York to become an artist.

Author and artist Chris Kraus returns to Wellington for a one-off, intimate conversation about her life and work. She talks with Claire Murdoch, Leader, Product and Audience at Radio New Zealand and previously Publisher at Te Papa Press.

Refreshments served.
