A request for help – some difficult-to-find texts by Michel Foucault

I wonder if anyone reading can help locate copies of these texts by, or about, Foucault. Texts crossed out are ones that I have been sent copies of already.

Michel Foucault, “Photogenic painting”, translated by Pierre A. Walker, Critical texts, Vol 6 No 3, 1989, pp. 1-12; also in Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault, Gérald Fromanger: Photogenic Painting/La peinture photogénique, French-English edition, London: Black Dog, 1999, pp. 81-104. Michel Foucault, “Dialogue on power” in Simeon Wade, Chez Foucault, 1978, pp. 4-22. Michel Foucault, “Response to Susan Sontag”, Soho News, 2 March 1982, p. 13. “The power and politics of Michel Foucault”, Inside (Daily Californian), 22 April 1983, pp. 7, 20-22. “A last interview with French philosopher Michel Foucault”, City Paper, 8:3, Jul 27-Aug 2 1984, p. 18. Phillip Horwitz, “Don’t cry for me academia”, Jimmy & Lucy’s House of K, 2 August 1984, pp. 78-80. Michel Foucault, “Le gai savoir”, Mec magazine, 5, June 1988, pp. 32-36 and “Le gai savoir II”, Mec magazine, 6-7, July-Aug 1988, pp. 30-33. (There is an English translation of a revised version of the two parts together in Critical Inquiry, and the French of that version is in Jean Bitoux’s Entretiens sur la question gay. But ideally I would like to see the two original parts.)

I’ve tried multiple ways to get hold of copies, so far with no luck. I am sure there are copies of some of these in the IMEC archive, but at the moment I’m hoping not to have to make another trip there. I know some (but not all) are in Dits et écrits, but they are often translations back into French and I’d like to see the original. The references are correct to the best of my knowledge, but obviously I’ve been unable to check and am reliant on other sources. Any help gratefully received – email me or comment below. At the Foucault Resources page on this site, and especially at the page on Uncollected Notes, Lectures and Interviews, there are some other difficult-to-find pieces that I was able to locate.
