Jim Campers’ photographic works evoke significant historical-cultural episodes of the self-imposed exile, displaying the profound contemporary relevance of the radical social critiques of the 1960s and ’70s. Forward Escape into the Past is Campers’ first solo exhibition, in which the artist brings together his two most recent series of photographs, situated at the intersection of nostalgia and visionary utopia. The recurring themes include withdrawal from society, a life in harmony with nature and the countercultures of the 1960s and ’70s. The title of the exhibition is suggestive of an alternative future for humanity, far removed from technological progress.
