The bilingual (German-English) book of the audiovisual collaboration NS-12 with the filmmaker Kristján Loðmfjörð came out from Hatje Cantz Verlag, Berlin, earlier this spring of 2019. This visual meditation on life on a fishing boat includes Kristín Ómarsdóttir’s “It Took So Long to Invent the Woman,” her essay and extensive, playfully serious interview with Mrs.Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, Iceland’s fourth president and Europe’s first female president. Other texts include Anna Friz’s “The Ruminations and Reveries of an Icelandic Trawler” and Daniel Canty’s “Gold Maker.” The black-and-white photographs, sketch, and wonderful cover designed by John and Evelyn Grzinich give a sense of the video installation that the book is born from.
