Description - Burial of the White Man by Erik Niedling
A bildungsroman about an artist and writer who embark on increasingly outrageous projects-culminating in the burial of the entire subspecies of the white man.Burial of the White Man is a bildungsroman about the friendship between artist Erik Niedling and writer Ingo Niermann. Two German men in their thirties, they begin collaborating on a series of projects of ever-increasing ambition and scope- a tomb for all humans, a dissident replica of the US army, a German-Mozambican youth and liberation movement, a ritual of living one year as if it's your last, a transformation of the oldest and most troubled German political party, a global fitness cult..... Each failure is answered with an even more outrageous endeavor-culminating in the burial not only of themselves, but of the entire subspecies of the white man.
Burial of the White Man is an auto-fiction by Erik Niedling, interpolated by manifestos and proposals by Ingo Niermann and expanded by Austrian-American poet Ann Cotten and German novelist Jakob Nolte. The third volume of the Future of Art series, the book accompanies Erik Niedling's web series, Pyramid Mountain- A Video Diary.
