Paul Chan: New New Testament

Oct 17, 2014 2:34PM
"But there is no other world. What took place or was said before the first word—the place that was, for the longest time, understood as the true destiny of your kind—is no place at all. This is it. You have been marooned here. How will you get by?" Text and image are reproduced from Paul Chan's extraordinary 1082-page, leatherbound artist's book, New New Testament, launching, alongside his Selected Writings (both published by Schaulager, Laurenz Foundation & Badlands Unlimited) this Wednesday evening, September 24 at ARTBOOK @ SWISS INSTITUTE. Chan will sign both books after a conversation with Swiss Institute Director Simon Castets.
