Walden, 2010

Walden from The Last Book is a single page collaboration and part of a larger book project conceived and curated by Luis Camnitzer. The premise of the project, that book-based culture is coming to an end, compiled written and visual statements from artists.  The Last Book is intended to serve as a time capsule and leave a document and testament of our time, as well as a stimulus for a possible reactivation of culture in case of disappearance by negligence, catastrophe or conflagration.

The Last Book traveled to Museum of the National Library of Madrid, Spain, The Zentralbibliothek Zürich, National Library of Argentina, and Aguilar Branch of the New York Public Library
