Deregulating Identity: Video and AIDS Activism

by Tom Folland

Mirror Machine and Identity, 1995, pp. 227-237

Toronto: YYZ Books, 1995

In this 1995 article the author explores the aesthetics of engagement in AIDS activism videos. The meanings of AIDS as they are constantly produced and changing, constitute as much a site for struggle for AIDS activists as the daily battle around access to treatment and civil liberties.
