WILDERNESS SURVIVAL GUIDE: A GUIDE TO THE AESTHETICS OF SURVIVALISM. Ed. by Ann Bak. Onomatopee, Eindhoven, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 144 pp. 20 x 12 cm. ISBN 9789491677427 In English.
Publisher's description: An intriguing meditation on the politics and aesthetics of survivalism assembled by Danish contemporary visual artist Anna Bak, this project began with her fascination with the North Pond Hermit, a man who lived in the wilderness for over 30 years. During the solitary and self-reliant but collaborative atmosphere of an artist residency in Maastricht, Bak decided to imagine the notion of survival through her artistic practice. She is joined by four other artists in this slender volume of texts and images exploring how one might survive real or speculative dangers as a poetic, contemporary, historic, social or creative act. Together with Bak's curious essay -- part allegory, part guidebook -- Dutch artist Joris Lindhout, Swedish art historian Niels Henriksen, Swiss artist Francois Dey and Irish writer, curator and art historian Padraic E. Moore contribute stories, letters, objects and installations illustrated here in black-and-white and full-bleed color photographs.
