“Forward Escape Into the Past” represents the synthesis of his two latest projects. They are situated on the intersection between nostalgia and a visionary utopia. The two photographic series are thematically linked by the title of the exhibition, which suggests an alternative future for humanity. “Forward Escape Into the Past” can be seen as a future far removed from technological progress, in which human beings seek a connection with their past and with nature. Jim Campers publishes his first artist book for the occasion of his solo exhibition in M – Museum Leuven (BE) and in De Brakke Grond Amsterdam (NL). Texts by John Zerzan and Steven Humblet.
