The more stuff we accumulate, the more space we need to store it all. Vast portions of the landscape are claimed and governed by spaces of storage, their maintenance, and the goods that move through them—or remain buried within them indefinitely.
This issue of Harvard Design Magazine investigates and unpacks the contents, containers, and systems of storage that organize our world.
Storage is the aggregation and containment of the material and immaterial stuff of culture; but also the safeguarding—or hoarding—of energy and tools for some imagined future purpose. How does all this stuff mask or overcompensate for economic and ecological bankruptcy? Is storage about greed or need? Storage, perhaps, is everything we can live without but insist on living with.
“Shelf Life” explores what’s inside the box (shed, tank, urn, vault, crypt, crate, case, pot, bag, vat, morgue, safe, bin, archive, warehouse, cabinet, cellar, cemetery, depository, locker, freezer, landfill, library). Even as we attempt to reduce and recycle, the stuff that we dispose of also needs to be stored. Where do we put it? Our planet is now a saturated receptacle. This warehouse is full, and we’re all inside it.

Issue V
The Issue of Narcissism

Narcissus is pretty. Narcissus doesn’t love you.
ECOCORE exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. Our imagination of the subject is made intricate by new perspectives on identity, the virtual, transcendence and how our aesthetic embodiment relates to capitalism. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.
Narcissism is pathologised as a personality disorder/a phenomenon/a force that affects our precarious relation to the other. Our tech-driven, screen-gazing society enables a solipsistic narcissism, to the extent that we can identify it as typical of our cultural mood, our pixelated age. Narcissism is easily read as a destructive impulse towards extinguishing otherness, but is also identified as a traumatised and debilitated loving in which the only happy love can be the contained self-love by which all libidinal investment belongs to the ego.
Your mouth is the only part of yourself that you can kiss in the mirror.

GX Jupitter-Larsen is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. In Nihil Ad Rem, his well-known performance art group The Haters is extensively documented from its inception to the present. From tearing paper in 1979, to blowing up hillsides in 1986, to amplifying erosion during the 1990s and 00s, to recent paintings, Jupitter-Larsen’s work celebrates entropy and his own self-created lexicon of units of measurement.

Atlas soccer is part of atlas, a collection of images taken from newspapers and gathered from 1990 to 2010 and later filed by subject. The material, exclusively in paper format, was found by chance and collected without a particular reason other than the compulsive attraction to the photographic image. It was only later, in the filing process, that it has found its current form, a sort of map of the author’s obsessions.
Atlas soccer is different from other, more uniform, collections in that inside the soccer world there are an infinite series of sub-categories that can be traced back to the actions and gestures taking place on the 90 minutes of the match. This chain of gestures opens to wider reflections on performance and production. Every gesture goes beyond its primary nature of spontaneous action and into the hybrid territory of representation. Soccer players, modern heroes relentlessly followed by camera lenses, give vent to their narration in a chain of poses that find their outlet in the image itself, displaying forms dripping with erotism and involuntary history of art. The match becomes synonym with the world; its gestures being its subjective variant.

British artist Jonathan Monk replays, recasts and re-examines seminal works of Conceptual and Minimal art by variously witty, ingenious and irreverent means. Speaking in 2009, he said, ‘Appropriation is something I have used or worked with in my art since starting art school in 1987. At this time (and still now) I realised that being original was almost impossible, so I tried using what was already available as source material for my own work.’

A few years ago Monk moved to Rome for a while with his family. In Rome he adopted a pleasant gastronomic routine: restaurants and pizzerias, alone or with friends, but most of all with his family. Once back home, between the name of the restaurant and the total of the bill, on top of all the various dishes consumed, the artist used a pencil, sometimes with watercolours, to reproduce the image of a work by another artist on the receipt or scrubby hand-written note. Clearly, the appropriationist approach which had characterised most of his work thus far also continued through this new life experience. This book collects One Hundred Meals between Rome and Berlin.

Rab-Rab: journal for political and formal inquiries in art

In almost 400 pages the third issue of Rab-Rab departs from Karl Marx’ essay on the law on the forest theft. The singularity of this essay is in its style; written in 1842, with the means of poetic abstraction it intervenes in the appropriation of the common resources by the private capital. By actualising poetry and abstraction as devices of political engagement, the third issue of the journal focuses on the question of subjectivity in art and politics. Among the diverse contributions the third issue includes texts and drawings on poetic configurations of Communist Manifesto, anti-fascist hallucinations of Artaud, neoliberalism of pirate radios, suburban riots, materiality of the film, representation of Stalin, communist sensuality, Last Futurist exhibition, documentary abstraction, declaration of East, Kazimir Malevich, the Black Square as organising principle, theory and militancy, Hegel and conceptualism, critique of objectivity of landscape, communism for children, hard-core punk, Art & Language, non-figuralism of art in self-management socialism, mathemes of cinematic experiments, the lesson of Rodolfo Walsh, and critique of ideological interpellation.
