The collection of 36 short stories by the pioneer of psychedelic realism was published as part of Garage’s publishing program with Artguide Editions.
The Age of Theme Parks invites the reader on a journey through a phantasmagorical world of entertainment that stretches across modernity, ancient times and the afterlife. Set against a futuristic and hallucinatory background, Pepperstein’s stories pose the question of how our own age of transition will appear to our descendants. The book abounds in cultural allusions and elements of various genres—from detective to melodrama to the trendy rap battles. Each story is illustrated with reproductions of Pepperstein’s paintings and his miniature drawings made specially for the edition.
The book will be presented by Pavel Pepperstein and Garage Director Anton Belov.
