“Publish And Perish” is an exhibition that features over 100 artworks, publications, artist editions, and ephemera produced by Badlands from 2010 to 2018, and showcases the aesthetic and editorial interests that made Badlands a singular, diverse, and unpredictable publishing enterprise. Highlights include the original manuscript for On Democracy by Saddam Hussein (2012), which was originally smuggled out of Baghdad during the 2nd Gulf War in 2003, Badlands’ first profit and loss statement in 2010 (total loss), mockups of unpublished and unrealized projects, and a series of oil portraits by Paul Chan depicting infamous publishers from history who were touchstones for Badlands.
