Unfortunately, this event has been canceled.
Artist, curator, writer, and editor Julie Ault (AIR ’13) talks about her recent book (FC) Two Cabins by James Benning. In 2008 filmmaker Benning built replicas of two iconic American cabins in a remote region of the High Sierras—Henry David Thoreau’s hut from Walden Pond and the one-room plywood shack built and inhabited by Theodore John Kaczynski (a.k.a. the ‘Unabomber’). Ault’s book engages Benning’s project as a platform through which to explore the politics of solitude and the relationships between social isolation, wilderness, and political participation.
