The Last Son charts Goldberg’s growth as an artist alongside his father’s acceptance of his own unrealized dreams. More generally, the narrative also reads as a story about American perseverance, family dynamics, and the struggle to exceed the expectations of those closest to us. Mixing photographs, collage, handwritten text, and stills from home movies, Goldberg mines his archive to trace his memories, beginning with his first photographs taken. The book is a sculptural collection of overflowing pages, offering a palpable interaction with his process of storytelling. The Last Son allows a tactile glimpse into Goldberg’s empathic process of making meaning from one’s history.

The Last Son is Goldberg’s second book in a personal, three-part Super Labo series weaving together an assemblage of visual memories that chart his own Bildungsroman. It follows Goldberg’s 134 Ways to Forget (Super Labo, 2011), a double-sided interactive poster/zine that juxtaposes Goldberg’s photographs with his writing as he sorts through 134 ways to forget a relationship. The third installment in this Super Labo series will continue to follow Goldberg’s personal trajectory–and include the never-before-published work he made during his travels in Asia in the 1970’s.
