A Conversation with Dan Pillers

Curator and producer of the exhibition, Dan Pillers met with H-Ray Heine, editor and publisher of, in April 2001 to discuss the background of the project, the figure of the queer widow in the gay community and society in general, and how the project facilitated the creation of this collection of works shown in this exhibition.

The conversation was recorded directly as digital video, using a laptop PC and a Kodak DV 232 camera. The Real Video clips presented here were created with RealProducer G2. 

CD-RomA multi-media cdrom about the "Life After Death: Embracing the Queer Widow" exhibition is under development and will become available later this year.
