Item description for Linder: Works 1976-2006 by Linder Sterling, Philip Hoare, Morrissey, Guoan Yu & Rafael Cortez...
Linder Sterling's work had its first exposure in the punk fanzine The Secret Public and as art for the sleeve of the Buzzcocks' first single, "Orgasm Addict." Soon she had her own band, Ludus, founded with Ian Divine. Her visuals and her performances have remained legendary in the musical world--for example, a costume consisting of raw meat and a black vibrator, worn for a special evening at the Hacienda--but these formative contributions to the aesthetics of punk and its offshoots have only recently received wider recognition. With no clear academic career path, without institutional or curatorial support, Linder has continued to make multidisciplinary work, work that has led observers to call her the missing link between Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin. This first book, a rediscovery and a debut at once, includes contributions from writers and cultural figures including Philip Hoare, Jon Savage, Andrew Renton, Lynne Tillman, Paul Bailey and Morrissey.

Cher, Madonna, Prince ... and Linder? Sep 28, 2006
Hoping there was more depth to Linder Sterling's work than her photocollages of the middle to late 1970's, which I quite enjoyed,I purchased this book. I was wrong. I'm not a fan of her "performance art" nor her recent work, which seems to be shallow and/or without any merit or edge. Additionally, I'm absolutely horrified when people. who have obviously abandoned their medication, mention her in the same sentence with Kurt Schwitters or John Heartfield. More appropriately, she should be mentioned with other egotistical artists who prefer to use only their first names. But then again, what do I know?
