Wayne Koestenbaum: Humiliation

Produced by:

Most everyone has a skeleton in the closet. Wayne Koestenbaum talks about those gruesome and hideous moments most of us would rather not remember. His inquiry into humiliation takes us from the shocking incidents in the lives of writers (Antonin Artaud,) to the horrific moments of certain celebrities who seem to almost thrive on embarrassment (Liza Minelli.) Koestenbaum outs himself as the aesthete of shame.
