How To Survive in the West is the name of a project by Studio Kaplan. Currently it consists of three different starting points. The three themes are supposed to grow into a series of publications. They’re tied by the absurd springing from the clash of the old and the modern. The maintenance of traditions, how human beings seem to know everything but actually end up being individuals who depend on rules, how we call ‘progress’ over and over while constantly bumping into factual reality. The three subjects are connected through the permanent clashing of different borders, which mean both limitation and relief.
How To Survive in the West is ongoing work in progress.
