Premieres + Parties at 2015 NY ART BOOK FAIR
Badlands Unlimited is pleased to participate in the 2015 NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1. Badlands will premiere three new erotic novellas in the New Lovers series, My Wet Hot Drone Summer by Lex Brown, I Would Do Anything for Love by Al Bedell, and Burning Blue by Cara Benedetto. Sexier, weirder, and naughtier than ever, they add more fuel to the fire already started by the release of the first trilogy earlier this year. A reading and book signing with all three authors will take place on Saturday, September 19, at 2pm in the Classroom at PS1. Badlands is also pleased to premiere Hippias Minor or The Art of Cunning. One of Plato’s most controversial dialogues, Hippias Minor details the confounding arguments Socrates makes to back his claims that there is no difference between a person who tells the truth and one who lies, and that the good man is the one who willingly makes mistakes and does wrong and unjust things. But what if Socrates wasn’t merely championing the act of lying—as it has been traditionally interpreted—but rather advocating for the power of the creative act? Translated by Sarah Ruden with an introduction by Paul Chan, an essay by Richard Fletcher, and co-published with the DESTE foundation.
