Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Some Detours' by artist Michael Lee at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, 28 February to 24 March 2013.

'Solitude has always existed in society in different forms: living or working solo; the lone vacation; and isolation from society. This issue of Corridors brings together texts that examine the diversity and complexity of solitude through four themes: the solitude of isolation imposed by an authority of power; the solitude of the dreamer withdrawn from society as a form of rebellion; the solitude of difference associated with one's sexuality; and the solitude of elements in the larger cosmos beyond humanity.' - from the back cover
