Beyond the Town addresses the wide audience of visitors coming to Hauser & Wirth Somerset at Durslade Farm in England - once an 18th-century agricultural property, transformed into a 21st-century arts centre. A portrait of the people and ideas behind this unique project, it is geared toward both professional and amateur audiences interested in art, architecture and landscape architecture, as well as cooking and gardening. Four essays place Durslade Farm in the wider context of the society and environment of Somerset and beyond. Each essay concentrates on one topic (architecture, gardening, society, art and education) to discuss the richness of this gallery model and to approach and reflect upon it from unexpected points of view. The essays are woven together with a trove of images as well as more personal conversations with the people at the heart of Durslade.
