11. “Drop Out” at Super Dutchess
At the Lower East Side’s Super Dutchess Gallery, a group of artists has submitted work that reflects on the idea of dropping out of society—living off the grid, and embracing the romanticism of Thoreau, or, in this case, the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. The artist Nick van Woert began buying up tools that were auctioned by the FBI, found at Kaczynski’s remote cabin in Montana. The artist has made metal casts of the tools, handmade by the Unabomber, leaving us to wonder if maybe we’re better off staying put.
