Slavs and Tatars – Kidnapping Mountains

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.

Kidnapping Mountains is the seventh in a series of co-publishing partnerships initiated by Book Works, entitled Fabrications. A total of eight publications appeared in the series, commissioned by me. With texts by Victoria Camblin, Payam Sharifi, and Slavs and Tatars. Designed by Kasia Korczak and Boy Vereecken.
