Louise Bourgeois x Jenny Holzer: The Violence of Handwriting across a Page

Edited by Jenny Holzer. Text by Anita Haldemann, Josef Helfenstein.

Louise Bourgeois x Jenny Holzer: The Violence of Handwriting across a Page

The obsessions and abiding themes of Louise Bourgeois, as seen through the eyes of Jenny Holzer

For both Jenny Holzer (born 1950) and Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010), the question of female identity is a central point of departure for their artistic production. Holzer knew Bourgeois personally and shares her sensitivity to language and the radicality of her creative position. Mainly focusing on Bourgeois’ writing and drawing practices, this gorgeous, large-format volume brings together the two legendary artists to propose a journey through Bourgeois’ obsessions and some of the major themes at stake in her work, among them motherhood, trauma, fear and loneliness.
Conceived and designed by Holzer to accompany the 2022 Louise Bourgeois exhibition that she curated at the Kunstmuseum Basel, the book puts Bourgeois’ works into dialogue with works from the Kunstmuseum Basel’s historical collections.
A fascinating montage of images and writings, this volume offers an unprecedented insight into Bourgeois’ art and life.

For anyone having trouble processing the post-Roe moment in history, we recommend JRP|Editions’ gorgeous new cri de coeur, Louise Bourgeois x Jenny Holzer: The Violence of Handwriting across a Page. Zoomed-in details of Bourgeois’ artworks, sometimes juxtaposed with Holzer’s, sometimes with other relevant artists in the collection of the Kunstmuseum Basel, but entirely focused on major themes in Bourgeois’ work—including motherhood, trauma, fear and loneliness—this book puts Bourgeois’ writing front and center. The work featured here, for example, reads “It’s none of your god damned business, damn it” at bottom. Another work, by Holzer, reads, “To unravel a torment, you have to begin somewhere.” continue to blog
