Jesper Just - Servitudes. Circuits. Interpassivities.
First retrospective monograph overviewing the Danish video artist's body of works for over a decade.
Produced in occasion of his solo shows at Maat, Lisbon, and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copehnagen, Servitudes. Circuits. Interpassivities. is the first in-depth recognition into Jesper Just's multilayered body of works. A filmmaker, a screenwriter, choreographer, and a performance artist, Just's practice has been constantly changing and evolving, to the point of comprising many different disciplines and media, melding together to create a unique form of art. Together with an extensive visual documentation of the artist's career, the book features texts and essays by Andrew Berardini, Irene Campolmi, Pedro Gadanho, André Lepecki, Michael Thouberg, Marianne Torp, Fatos Ustek.

“Jesper Just is an artist who has made himself known not only for the faultless textural quality of his nonnarrative films but also for conceiving them as part of highly complex architectural installations that, by intervening in the visitor's experience, create a sensory journey that requires the visitor to "perform"—willingly or not—within the space in order to navigate it.”—Irene Campolmi
