Product Description

Newsprint book of the 35 letters Cathy A. received from her Mother Earth News ad placed in 1976.


The Positions and Situations Project is a series of 100 letter correspondences between artist Alex Arzt and individuals who placed classified ads in 1970s magazines published as resources for back-to-the-landers. After the tumult of the 1960s counterculture, many young people were disillusioned with the political system, the Vietnam War, consumerism, and pollution and were looking for land and a community to test out their ideals. From the late sixties through the mid seventies, one of the largest urban to rural migrations in American history occurred. The three Riso-printed artist books tell the first-hand stories of the accomplishments and failures of the back-to-the-landers in imagining and creating alternatives to a society they understood as fundamentally broken.


The Positions and Situations Project is conceived, produced, designed, printed, and bound by Alex Arzt ©2017.
