Kidnapping Mountains by Slavs and Tatars
Published by Book Works (2009)
Kidnapping Mountains is a playful and informative, exploration of the muscular stories, wills, and defeat inhabiting the Caucasus region. Comprising two parts: an eponymous section addressing the complexity of languages and identities on the fault line of Eurasia, and Steppe by Steppe, a restoration of the regions seemingly reactionary approaches to romance.
Slavs and Tatars are a collective devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia, who redeem an oft-forgotten, romantic sphere of influence between Slavs, Caucasians and Central Asians. With texts by Victoria Camblin and Payam Sharifi.
