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.

In March of 1999, ArtForum magazine devoted its cover story to the work of Bas Jan Ader and his posthumous retrospective at the University of California, Irvine. Long a cult figure in the L.A. art world, Ader has influenced well known artists including Charles Ray and Christopher Williams as well as a new wave of younger artists such as Jennifer Bornstein. Born in the Netherlands in 1942, Ader spent most of his adult life in the Los Angeles area. He studied at Otis College of Art and Design and at Claremont Graduate School; at the time of his death he was teaching at the University of California, Irvine. Ader is best known for using photography and film to document intensely personal performances. In 1975, as part of a major performance piece, Ader set off in a sailboat from Cape Cod intent on breaking the record for the quickest Atlantic crossing in a single-person vessel. In April, 1976, roughly nine months after his departure, the remains of this boat were found off the coast of Ireland. His body was never found. This exhibition catalogue documents the full range of Ader's performance, photographic, and film work.

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."
