The Autobiography of Steve Reinke

by Tom Folland

Steve Reinke, July Summer 2000, v. 12, no. 3

New York: Thread Waxing Space, 2000

Steve Reinke gives an honest discussion about the elusively autobiographical aspects of his video art practice. His works manifest the need for self-expression without revealing the true self and the desire to create video art without taking the postmodern art route. Reinke often employs punning, dry, sardonic voice-overs to both anchor and destabilize the visual imagery found in cinema-verité footage.

The file also contains an interview with Steve Reinke which centers around one of his more mature works Spiritual Animal Kingdom (1998), his videography, selected publications and bibliography.
