Over-Booked: Paul Chan on Badlands Unlimited
Paul Schmelzer from the Walker Art Center interviews Paul Chan about Badlands and the future of the artist book. Schmelzer writes, "The quintessential polymath, Paul Chan is an internationally known artist, experimental publisher, GIF designer, and speaker (he’s keynoting the 2012 New York Art Book Fair on September 29). At the end of my recent conversation with him on the new book On Democracy by Saddam Hussein—a provocative look at the late dictator’s 1970s democracy speeches—I asked him about his publishing company, Badlands Unlimited, the stone book he’s debuting at the art book fair, and his love of animated GIFs, among other topics."
