What are the thoughts we live by… the ones we can’t do without? This series aims to look at the thoughts that don’t just pass, but can anchor a life. Do they arrive from elsewhere or are they generated within? It seems that they can recur time and time again, or surface just once in the course of your life. Whatever the case, each book explores the thoughts, visual or verbal, which the author can’t do without.

In this essay, Samuel Wells meditates on the paradox of contemporary life: we are more connected than ever– so why are we lonely? Drawing on secular and theological thinkers, from Iris Murdoch to Augustine of Hippo, he proposes a vision for being with one another that contrasts with working for, working with or being for each other. With is a short and powerful essay exploring issues which have recurred in the work of contemporary thinkers on community such as Jean-Luc Nancy, Roberto Esposito, and Giorgio Agamben.

Extract

Miguel Tamen’s inquiry into what it means to be an “artistic” person is a light-hearted dive into the philosophy of art. Uncovering basic assumptions about what it means to encounter an artwork by way of examples such as the city of Naples, and Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Tamen’s characteristic style handles weighty problems with ease. Horace, Bertrand Russell, Franco Moretti, and Ludwig Wittgenstein are all at play in this plea for a renewed understanding of closeness and its importance.

Andrew Ross’s reflections on his experience of combining activism with writing offer guidance about how to meet political obligations and seize opportunities when presented with events of historical significance. We don’t get to choose the time we live in, nor the conditions which determine our agency. What are our responsibilities to the world we’re given, not only to interpret and understand it but also to change it? How can we look at the past as an inspiration while remaining responsive to the urgent demands of the present?

Words for Portraits is a series of essays and short stories from English-language and Italian-language authors written on a portrait of their choice. Whether it’s an oil painting, photograph, a close-up, sculpture, sketch, image or mask, every portrait captures a transient moment of a body or face.

Each book is the result of an encounter and collaboration between the visual and the verbal, the temporal and the spatial, the silent and the spoken.

Will Ashon looks to David Hockney’s portrait “My Mother, Bolton Abbey”. The image is a joiner, a photo-collage, of Laura Hockney made in 1982. Ashon creates a collage of his own, interviewing ten women of different ages and rearranging their responses; the result is a celebratory chorus and homage to the thoughts and memories that flourish when we lend our attention to an artwork.

For Juxta‘s first series of artists’ books, we invite artists to consider the afterlife in its multifarious imaginings, such as extinction and nothingness, dislocation and resurrection. Throughout the millennia, every civilization and culture has developed a system of beliefs and rituals to address this universal conundrum.
The afterlife is an idea that evokes many questions but provides no assured answers. Is there anything ensuing the extinction of the body? Can human beings reconstitute themselves after death? Each artist explores such uncertainties, preserving their original viewpoint within a book.

mandarin contains a series of images shot by Burgin using a virtual camera inside a rendered videogame environment built by Mountain View Studios. A tropical landscape governed by dream-logic responds to the fragmented memories of organic life recalled by its digital inhabitant; paths appear from nowhere leading the speaker on journeys that always seem to take him back to the same place. Contemplating paradisal stasis, mandarin explores how we might reconstruct embodied memories in an immaterial and virtual world.

This softcover book reproduces pencil drawings from Anselmo’s 1978 exhibition ‘Un particolare a sud, Trecento milioni di anni ad ovest nord-ovest, quattordici disegni intorno at Sperone Westwater Fischer, New York. Each copy features a unique titular frottage by the artist. The drawings show a compass in sixteen different positions. As the needle rotates, the number of directions multiply. Anselmo’s afterlife hints to an immanent infinity that threatens to collapse our sense of measurement, space and orientation before the intimation of a void.

This 64-page, softcover book is an intermedial mix of image and text. A black hole steadily expands on each page while, on the verso, Steinbach repeats a single line of text 33 times. Negation after negation, the black hole gradually engulfs the page. This occupation of space paradoxically voids it while obscuring the concept of the infinite itself.

This book combines two kinds of imagery. It pairs together Beam of Light, Kiki Smith’s drawings from the Vision Hour collages, with Seton Smith’s photographs of Hangzhou and the Pedder Building in Hong Kong. Page after page, one is confronted by alternating moods, either shifting towards the marvel of nature or sliding into cloistered spaces. It suggests ancient dichotomies, like heaven and hell, body and soul, decomposition and growth.

Home can be a space of conflict or a source of continuity; it can entail hospitality or xenophobia. Changing concepts of home, from the medieval practise of living with livestock to the feminine gentility of nineteenth century domesticity, are today altering notions of public and private.

Addressing the theme with prints, Juxta invites artists to consider how art may constitute one of the acts we perform to makes ourselves at Home. But it is also an idea that transcends the materials we use to bolster it. As Heraclitus said, shivering at his stove, “For here too the gods are present.”

This metal sign was created for the film ‘Interventi pubblici per la città di Milano’ (1979) and reshot in Milan in 2019. The slogan encapsulates the artist’s varied practise.

Nine contemporary artists contribute to this series of prints devoted to the idea of Justice. Plato saw justice as the ultimate virtue of both individuals and societies. Still, after the thousands of years our species has been on the planet, we remain uncertain about whether justice comes to us naturally or must be acquired through ongoing introspection and communal experiences.

Each print here operates as a kind of manifesto, a word that in Italian means both a poster and a statement announcing a new world view. Instead of words alone, however, now the statement comprises visual as well as mental values.

Garcia’s work immediately brings us to an intimate dimension of justice. The drawing shows the bust of a person, whose face is hidden, stating: I can’t breathe.

This series binds together the work of master calligraphists from all over the world; they are the heirs and reinventors of a millenary tradition. Each book contains original drawings that foreground basic rhythm and form, tying together words and images, emotions and thoughts, nature and human imagination.

There is no space for hesitation; calligraphy moves between description and depiction, capturing the flux of what it signifies. Such modulation leaps beyond the here and now, as if to become a link of ink traversing the cosmos.

Zhao Yizhou embraces the long tradition of Shufa calligraphy while using an alchemic ink of his own invention to add new textures to the ancient art. Here, he mixes works relating to philosophy, spirituality and literature. The books are hand-bound in metal, with a single internal work digitally printed onto the cover.
