When the author’s first excessive and grandiose submission to the Luxembourg Art Prize in 2020 did not produce any contest winnings, for some reason Garrett Fisher seemed to think that there was intelligence in trying again in 2021. When that turned out with the same result, he decided to do the same thing he did with “My Struggle,” which was to make a monument of the escapade by turning the submission into a book. While the jury of the Luxembourg Art Prize seems to have found his many words to not be motivating, many who have enjoyed Mr. Fisher’s visual works have pined for verbosity explaining the thoughts, motivations, and feelings behind the creation of the work in question (the Art Prize asked for the same thing, but we digress). His fifth most verbose work out of thirty-two books, My Struggle Continues is a monument to the author pretending to no longer give a crap about institutional responses to his work, while doing a mediocre job hiding it. Amidst its artistic sardonicism, it is a compendium of essays covering 80 works generated in 2020 and 2021, along with a smattering of other images and prose.
