Acknowledgement by the Editor
This issue is dedicated to the power of AIDS, and everyone living with the virus.
Throughout the making of this issue I thought countless times of Frank Wagner (1958 - 2016). He was a curator whose dedication and output made a positive difference in the lives of artists, audiences, galleries, and institutions. His scholarship and commitment to artists living with HIV and impacted by the epidemic was vital and influential. His exhibitions LOVE AIDS RIOT SEX 1 + 2 remain a important touchstones for how to curate the crisis in the 21st century.
Thank-you to all of the contributors for their brilliance, and patience; to Dorothee Richter, Ronald Kolb, and Volker Schartner for your guidance and skills; to Stephanie Carwin for your talents and endurance; to Daniel Brenner, Julie Golia and everyone at the Brooklyn Historical Society for the assistance; Corrine Fitzpatrick, Kris Nuzzi, Heiner Schulze, Amy Scholder, and Liza Zapol for the information and introductions; to Kyle Croft, Nancy Chong, Tracy Fenix, Alex Fialho, Esther McGowan, Amy Sadao, Nelson Santos, and the whole Visual AIDS crew (past, present, forever) for being amazing; and to Sam Feder, Amy Fung, Alexandra Juhasz, Alexander McClelland, Tommaso Mozzati and Justin Yockel for the support along the way.
