Co-presented with Headlands Center for the Arts , artist, curator, writer, and editor Julie Ault 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.
