Bas Jan Ader

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Bas Jan Alder has cropped up many a time since I started art school. The first time thanks to Pete and a nice post on but does it float being the most recent.

His life story is as fascinating as the small body of work he left behind. Films of free-fall/forced-fall are the most notable and ask more questions than could be answered before he disappeared.
