Death of Art dissects post-capitalist, post-Internet, post-death culture; our ability and affinity to be both disembodied and tethered to technology, allowing us to be in several places at once and nowhere at all.

“Death of Art doubles as an experimental film with alternate endings, a transcription of performance pieces, the starting point of a book Campanioni expects the reader to create through erasure.” — The Brooklyn Rail

“Death of Art glorifies and subverts a culture that strives for the commodification of self and soul, in an age when identity and privacy have become a product.” — Harvard Review

“Award-winning author Chris Campanioni may, for better or worse, be the voice of our generation in which the internet is our stomping ground and making eye contact with our friends and family is a rare treat if someone forgets to charge their phone or leaves it in another room.” — Your Impossible Voice

“Death of Art is one of the best books I’ve read in years. It flawlessly combines the stream-of-consciousness irregularities that make poetry so heartfelt with the progressive narrative of fiction that gets people to finish a book. I recommend this title to anyone looking for a break from normalcy or needing to take a deep look in the mirror.” — Nomadic Press

““Chris’ poetry has a hashtag, abbreviated quality to it that is both deeply intimate and thrilling.” — Metal Magazine
