The second installment of The Death Book is dedicated to Bruce LaBruce’s archive of rarely published or previously unpublished work characterized by morbid fascinations. Here photographs depicting gang rapes, racial tensions, extreme violence, amputee fetishism and, of course, death challenge the viewer to explore what lies beneath the veneer of Western society. The book brings this body of work together for the first time, combining LaBruce’s performances, actions, film production stills and photography that explicitly outline his obsessions, with never-before-exhibited archival works from projects including Hustler White, Otto; or Up with Dead People, and L.A. Zombie.
