Juliana Huxtable on the Five Works That Shaped Her Practice
Singular in her approach to art and music, Juliana Huxtable is a very contemporary polymath. As she begins her Somerset House Studios x Goethe-Institut London digital residency from her home in Berlin, we invited her to share with us the five most important works that influenced and shaped her practice.
"Paul B. Preciado’s Testo Junkie is the single most illuminating, paradigm-shifting and totalising take on the evolution of power, capital and their permutations of the past 10+ years."
"The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas – never sacrificing nuance or beauty for political urgency, Emory Douglas has long been a key influence in my visual work."
"One of my favourite albums of all time, Christian Death's Only Theatre of Pain is at the same time romantic, camp, poeti-dada and gothic with punk sonics, Only Theatre of Pain is poetry and sonic aggressive, sonic whimsy in record form."
"The 1996 Gulliver's Travels miniseries – the aesthetic of multiculturalism meets period piece representation meets high budget public television fantasy."
