On July 9, 1975, Dutch-born artist Bas Jan Ader set sail from Chatham, Massachusetts, on a thirteen-foot sailboat. He was bound for Falmouth, England, on the second leg of a three-part piece titled In Search of the Miraculous. The damaged boat was found south of the western tip of Ireland nearly a year later. Ader was never seen again. Since his untimely death, Ader has achieved mythic status in the art world as a figure literally willing to die for his art. Considering the artist’s legacy and concise oeuvre beyond the romantic and tragic associations that accompany his peculiar end, Alexander Dumbadze resituates Ader’s art and life within the conceptual art world of Los Angeles in the early 1970s and offers a nuanced argument about artistic subjectivity that explains Ader’s tremendous relevance to contemporary art. Bas Jan Ader blends biography, theoretical reflection, and archival research to draw a detailed picture of the world in which Ader’s work was rooted: a vibrant international art scene populated with peers such as Ger van Elk, William Leavitt, and Allen Ruppersberg. Dumbadze looks closely at Ader’s engagement with questions of free will and his ultimate success in creating art untainted by mediation. The first in-depth study of this enigmatic conceptual artist, Bas Jan Ader is a thoughtful reflection on the necessity of the creative act and its inescapable relation to death.

When Bas Jan Ader's boat, Ocean Wave, was found unmanned and partially submerged 150 miles off the coast of Ireland by a Spanish fishing vessel in 1976, it was taken to La Coruña for investigation. Days later, the boat was stolen and the cult of Ader, whose body was never recovered, and who was thought by many to have staged this incident, was truly cemented. In this volume, Marion van Wijk and Koos Dalstra, who spent 10 years investigating this unsolved mystery, reproduce the entire police report in facsimile. They also include many pages of eerie written documentation and transcriptions of interviews they conducted during their decade of intensive sleuthing. The report has 74 pages: it begins on April 27, 1976 and ends on February 1, 1977. It relates the history of the Ocean Wave from the discovery of the vessel to the closure of the case. This book is a reprint of the earlier edition from Veenman Publishers with additional research included.

When Bas Jan Ader's boat, "Ocean Wave," was found unmanned and partially submerged 150 miles off the coast of Ireland by a Spanish fishing vessel in 1976, it was taken to La Coruna for investigation. Days later, the boat was stolen and the cult of Ader, whose body was never recovered, and who was thought by many to have staged this incident, was truly cemented. In this volume, Marion van Wijk and Koos Dalstra, who spent 10 years investigating this unsolved mystery, reproduce the entire police report in facsimile. They also include many pages of eerie written documentation and transcriptions of interviews they conducted during their decade of intensive sleuthing: "The report has 74 pages. It begins on April 27, 1976 and ends on February 1, 1977. It relates the history of the "Ocean Wave" from the moment Don Alferan speaks about his discovery to the authorities until nine months later, when the case is closed. The reason: the authorities cannot find the stolen boat that disappeared from San Diego harbor in Coruna between May 18 and June 7, 1976."

"The artists Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, and Jack Goldstein shared a common interest in themes of disappearance in their works in Southern California around 1970. This book accompanies an exhibition by the same title, which reveals a fascinating intersection between these major figures as they respond to cultural pressures like the Vietnam War, conceptual art, and the rise of feminism"--
