Recommended reading for this exact moment: ‘Louise Bourgeois x Jenny Holzer: The Violence of Handwriting across a Page’

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.”
