Anton Ginzburg: At the Back of the North Wind

This book is based on an exhibition that was presented at the 54th Venice Biennale. The book traces Ginzburg’s artistic exploration of Hyperborea, the mythical region first described by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus as the land of the Golden Age, a place thought to exist in a state of pure bliss and eternal springtime despite its supposed location in the extreme north.
