Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through

How do the bodies we inhabit affect our relationship with art? How does art affect our relationship to our bodies? T Fleischmann uses Felix Gonzáles-Torres's artworks—piles of candy, stacks of paper, puzzles—as a path through questions of love and loss, violence and rejuvenation, gender and sexuality.

Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through Reviews

  • Oliver Baez Bendorf

    "I know it's not that simple, tit for tap, but I don't want to give any more of my touch to language. I just want language to generate more touch." A book about Felix Gonzalez-Torres, ice, and sex, but also coming into one's body and how or why to live and love "uninscribed," as a writer. I read this out loud to a lover in two three-hour stretches over two days. It's tender, agile, and smart, and I didn't want it to end.

    I think this is the first book I truly loved in 2019. It's such a wonderfully built essay/book, circling and weaving, always on the move. Mixing criticism & autobiography, it reads similarly to Maggie Nelson, and anyone who liked

    or

    should probably read this (especially because there's not the weird fetishism-y vibes of trans people in this one).

    The way that Fleischmann discusses their identity, their resistance to much of the firm language relating to queer identities,

    The way that Fleischmann discusses their identity, their resistance to much of the firm language relating to queer identities, is truly everything to me. I didn't expect to see myself so reflected in this book. Also, there's a lot of just really fun stuff and many moments of humor! This is really truly excellent and you should definitely not sleep on it!

    Also, be on the lookout for an interview with myself and Fleischmann, which should be out in June (when this book comes out!).

    EDIT: Here it is!

    Not my cup of tea. Not fair to review a work on a subject I know nothing about. But I will rate the book as OK even though it was not.
