||Silence is a Four-Letter Word: On Art & Deafness
Raymond Luczak, poet, playwright, and filmmaker, hands us Silence is a Four-Letter Word: On Art and Deafness as his call to arms for deaf artists everywhere. He uses a series of rapid-fire mini-essays and a self-interview to illuminate his points. His meditations on what makes art "art" and deafness "deaf" asks artists everywhere to rethink observations on their work and live differently.
"Art is risk". "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 for us to ask important questions of ourselves." - Emily Drabinski, Out
"A penetrating account of the artist and his muse." - Harlan Lane, author of When the Mind Hears: A History of the Deaf
