Please join the MAK Center and A.R.T. Press on Tuesday, February 21 at the Schindler House to celebrate the launch of (FC) Two Cabins by JB, a project-based publication that documents and analyzes a recent body of work by critically acclaimed filmmaker James Benning, edited by Julie Ault.
Benning reconstructed Henry David Thoreau's and Ted Kaczynski's iconic cabins, and uses these structures to reflect on utopian and dystopian versions of social isolation, practices of dissent, nonprescriptive ways of living, and the politics of solitude. The book includes photography by Benning, essays by Ault, Benning, and Dick Hebdige, and extracts from both Thoreau's and Kaczynski's writings.
A conversation with Julie Ault, James Benning, and Dick Hebdige will begin at 7 PM.
