To Stay Alive: A Method
To Stay Alive: A Method - Erik Lieshout, Arno Hagers and Reinier van Brummelen (2016)
How to survive as a singular individual in this impersonal world. Iggy Pop tells us in To Stay Alive: A Method. In his sunny garden in Miami, he reads from Michel Houellebecq’s To Stay Alive. Houellebecq wrote this sensational essay about madness, survival and art in 1991 and called it a weak but clear message for everyone about to give up. As he reads, Iggy Pop addresses viewers directly and says: break your chains and go for it!
