Published by After 8 Books.
Edited with foreword by Judith Welter. Text by Sam Pulitzer.

An artist’s book by New York–based author and artist Sam Pulitzer (born 1984), The Premise of a Better Life combines photographs with ethical and existential questions addressed to the viewer, in an allegory of the contemporary condition. These photographs of everyday things, ambiguous details, nondescript landscapes and cityscapes were mostly taken in New York, although the city appears as the pale reflection of a model city. Each picture is accompanied by a question: “Can you afford yourself?” “Are you waiting for a moment that just won’t come?” “If you knew then what you know now, would it make a difference?” “Do you trust happiness?” The montages offer a complex, personal, at times satirical image of the present age.
An original essay by Pulitzer unfolds the project’s philosophical and political issues, notably discussing a key reference for the project, Ernst Bloch’s The Principle of Hope.
