(FC) Two Cabins by JB is a project-based publication that documented and analyzed a recent body of work by critically acclaimed filmmaker James Benning, edited by Julie Ault. Benning reconstructed Henry David Thoreau’s and Ted Kaczynski’s iconic cabins, and used these structures to reflect on utopian and dystopian versions of social isolation, practices of dissent, nonprescriptive ways of living, and the politics of solitude. The book includes photography by Benning, essays by Ault, Benning, and Dick Hebdige, and extracts from both Thoreau’s and Kaczynski’s writings.

(FC) Two Cabins by JB is available in the MAK Center bookstore.
