Bas Jan Ader. Please don’t leave me

Thirty years after Bas Jan Ader failed to return from a solo crossing of the Atlantic, the interest in his work continues to grow. In less than ten years he created some thirty-five works of art in which falling, physical and emotional vulnerability and mortality are the central themes. Published to coincide with a retrospective exhibition, this thoroughly illustrated catalogue provides a much needed overview of these and other aspects of Ader’s work. Also includes contributions by Tacita Dean, Jörg Heiser and Erik Beenker, amongst others.
