Everybody Loves Nothing : Video 1996 - 2004

Steve Reinke
14 × 22 cm

Artist and writer Steve Reinke is best known for his video work, an acerbic oeuvre that spans over a decade and includes his most famous piece, The Hundred Videos, literally a hundred short videos in which he explores the myriad permutations of identity, sexuality and art. The titles of his videos – “In the Realm of Perpetual Embarrassment”, “Sad Disco Fantasia”, “How Photographs Are Stored in the Brain” are some examples – encapsulate the tenor of Reinke’s work: deadpan, self-deprecating, personal and always funny. Composed of original and found footage (from home movies, training Þlms, porn þicks), the videos are typically diaristic, often philosophical, even elegiac. The writing itself is extremely well-crafted, possessing a wit and intelligence that translates well to the page; what seems improvisatory on screen is in fact very polished and precise prose.

“Everybody Loves Nothing” contains Reinke’s scripts from 1996 to the present, accompanied by numerous illustrative stills. An extensive interview with fillmmaker Mike Hoolboom provides a broad overview of Reinke’s career, themes and ambitions. Introduction by Lisa Steele.
