Erik Niedling with Ingo Niermann
When Berlin-based artist Erik Niedling dies, he would like to be buried in Pyramid Mountain, the largest tomb of all time as conceived by writer Ingo Niermann, his collaborator on this book. The second in Niermann’s Future of Art series, this Diary documents a year in the life of Niedling, who lived each day as though it were his last. In a letter that examines the social and philosophical implications of the project Tom McCarthy calls the book “a kind of Atkins diet for the soul.” The book was published as a companion to the exhibition “18.10.1973–29.02.2012” (Niedling’s fictional life-span) at the Neues Museum Weimar.
