Chris Kraus is a filmmaker and the author of I Love Dick and Aliens & Anorexia, and coeditor of Hatred of Capitalism: A Semiotext(e) Reader.

Kim Gordon has been writing and performing experimental rock music for more than three decades, in addition to her work as a visual artist, writer, and designer. In 1981, she co-founded the band Sonic Youth, for which she sang and played guitar and bass. Kim’s book of essays, Is It My Body?: Selected Texts, was published in 2014 on Sternberg Press.  Her memoir, Girl In A Band, was published in 2015 to international acclaim and her visual art continues to be exhibited worldwide.  Kim continues to perform solo improvisational shows as well as with ‘Body/Head’, a guitar duo with Bill Nace.
