In 2002, Raymond Luczak handed us his call to arms for deaf artists everywhere. Ten years later, he revisits the book that challenged assumptions about being a deaf artist. Has anything changed? Yes and no. His meditations on what makes art “art” and deafness “deaf” asks artists--whether deaf or not--to rethink their work and live differently. Observations made from the past decade are included.
“Written in the form of quick bursts of opinion arrived at over his many years as a poet, playwright, and filmmaker, Luczak seeks to shake deaf artists out of the cages built by the hearing world . . . There are plenty of opinions to argue with in this volume. Yet Luczak calls us to ask important questions of ourselves.” -- Emily Drabinski, Out
“A penetrating account of the artist and his muse.”
