BARE WITNESS, A: CONFESSION CURRENCY, $?, 5 ¼” x 7 ¾”, 14 pgs.

Dec 13, 2016

Performance artist Kayla Tange made this zine to document a show in which audience members anonymously wrote down their kinks and secrets. This zine stitches that performer/audience interplay into one piece with lovely layout that features confessions interspersed between transparency photos of a woman—Tange herself, I think—dressed in lingerie and a nun’s habit. You can read a handwritten note about someone who used to “listen for [their] dad and step mom having sex” on one page and see a nun praying next to a dildo on the next. Tange opens A Bare Witness with short essay on the satisfaction that comes with being a stripper, which helps put the whole thing in context. A wild ride, for sure. Now that I’m done reading, I can mail this copy to the Vatican. –Jim Joyce (kaylatange.com)
