Adrian Piper began to write meta-art about her own artwork in 1967 to make sense of her artistic activity. She began to write art criticism at the same time because no one else was writing about the issues her artwork engaged. She began to study Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason to make sense of those issues; and this led her to return to university for more intensive philosophical study. This volume gathers together texts, almost half of which are previously unpublished, from and about the first decade of her professional involvement as an artist and philosopher. Forthcoming
