Christopher Glazek on Nan Goldin and the Sacklers

New York-based writer Christopher Glazek’s 2017 investigation of the Sacklers for Esquire helped inspire Nan Goldin’s activism against the Sackler family—a family which owns Purdue Pharma, the manufacturer of Oxycontin. Here, Glazek talks about Goldin’s actions at the Metropolitan and Guggenheim museums, as well as his own interest in what he calls “billionaire democracy.”
