Dead Cowboys →
Dead Cowboys is a Together& Mike Dings project. The 88-page unbound A3 magazine comprises of the complete collection of works on paper portraying deceased cowboys (2019) by the Dutch artist with a profound love for Spaghetti Westerns. The publication highlights the sensible strokes of Dings' pencils, showing lonely yet brutally honest scenes of anonymous cowboy figures captured during the dying moments before no one will remember them, again. Dutch writer and poet Bram Schweckhorst was asked to write the accompanying short-short story that forms the introduction of the magazine. Inspired by the works of Dings, in a captivating, almost cinematic style, Schweckhorst describes the essence of one of these lonely encounters - in order for us to remember those who were doomed to be forgotten by all.
Together& is a multidisciplinary practice for collaboration by Joachim Baan, Christoph van Veghel, Jordi Carles Subirà and an ever-changing network of like minds.
