Bas Jan Ader (Bastiaan Johan Christiaan “Bas Jan” Ader – 19 April 1942 – disappeared 1975) was a Dutch conceptual and performance artist, and photographer. His work was in many instances presented as photographs and film of his performances. He made performative installations, including Please Don’t Leave Me (1969).

His deserted vessel was found off the coast of Ireland on 18 April 1976, offering few clues as to his fate. (
