Still from 'Attempt at tje Ocean - not-to-touch-the-ground' by Patrik Qvist (issue 7)
It may have begun as a collaboration between two writers, but Dark Mountain soon slipped beyond the bounds of the written word. Today, the visual and performing arts are strongly represented in the pages of our books, as well as at the festivals and gatherings that have taken place around this project.
The encounter with other art forms has taken us in surprising directions. There’s been a mail-art project inspired by the manifesto, a year-long Dark Mountain Workshop at Sweden’s national theatre and a special issue in which all the artwork was painted on the skins of roadkill deer.
In this section, you’ll meet some of the artists we’ve collaborated with or featured in our books, and learn more about the stories behind their work.
