'Black Sun’ is edited in conversation with Krist Gruijthuijsen, currently the director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, to accompany the exhibitions ‘David Wojnarowicz Photography & Film 1978–1992’, ‘Reza Abdoh’, and ‘TIES, TALES AND TRACES: Dedicated to Frank Wagner, Independent Curator (1958–2016)’.

The issue departs from Wojnarowicz’s grief at the loss of loved ones during the 1980s AIDS crisis and anger at the US government for its wilful neglect. It assembles a selection of various gendered and sexual positions, all seeking support, love, and intimacy in linguistic, architectural, and bodily structures while under threat of collapse.
