Il suo debutto fu modesto. A tutt'oggi sono stati rinvenuti 1. Verso il d. I ritrovamenti egiziani gettano luce anche sulla transizione del codex dal papiro alla pergamena. Sebbene gli undici codici della Bibbia datati in quel secolo fossero papiracei, esistono circa 18 codici dello stesso secolo con scritti pagani e quattro di questi sono in pergamena.
Non ne scegliemmo alcuno, ma ne raccogliemmo altri otto per i quali gli diedi dracme in conto. Il codex tanto apprezzato da Marziale aveva quindi fatto molta strada da Roma. Nel terzo secolo, quando tali codici divennero alquanto diffusi, quelli di pergamena iniziarono ad essere popolari.
In breve, anche in Egittola fonte mondiale del papiroil codice di pergamena occupava una notevole quota di mercato. Sono tutti di pergamena, edizioni eleganti, scritti in elaborata calligrafia su sottili fogli di pergamena.
Per tali edizioni di lusso il papiro era certamente inadatto. In almeno un'area, la giurisprudenza romanail codex di pergamena veniva prodotto sia in edizioni economiche che in quelle di lusso. La caduta dell'Impero romano nel V secolo d. Il papiro divenne difficile da reperire a causa della mancanza di contatti con l' Antico Egitto e la pergamenache per secoli era stata tenuta in secondo piano, divenne il materiale di scrittura principale.
I monasteri continuarono la tradizione scritturale latina dell' Impero romano d'Occidente. La tradizione e lo stile dell' Impero romano predominavano ancora, ma gradualmente emerse la cultura del libro medievale. I monaci irlandesi introdussero la spaziatura tra le parole nel VII secolo.
L'innovazione fu poi adottata anche nei Paesi neolatini come l'Italiaanche se non divenne comune prima del XII secolo. Si ritiene che l'inserimento di spazi tra le parole abbia favorito il passaggio dalla lettura semi-vocalizzata a quella silenziosa. Prima dell'invenzione e della diffusione del torchio tipograficoquasi tutti i libri venivano copiati a mano, il che li rendeva costosi e relativamente rari.
I piccoli monasteri di solito possedevano al massimo qualche decina di libri, forse qualche centinaio quelli di medie dimensioni. Il processo della produzione di un libro era lungo e laborioso.
Infine, il libro veniva rilegato dal rilegatore. Esistono testi scritti in rosso o addirittura in oro, e diversi colori venivano utilizzati per le miniature.
A volte la pergamena era tutta di colore viola e il testo vi era scritto in oro o argento per esempio, il Codex Argenteus. Per tutto l'Alto Medioevo i libri furono copiati prevalentemente nei monasteri, uno alla volta. Il sistema venne gestito da corporazioni laiche di cartolaiche produssero sia materiale religioso che profano. Questi libri furono chiamati libri catenati. Vedi illustrazione a margine. L' ebraismo ha mantenuto in vita l'arte dello scriba fino ad oggi.
Anche gli arabi produssero e rilegarono libri durante il periodo medievale islamicosviluppando tecniche avanzate di calligrafia arabaminiatura e legatoria. Col metodo di controllo, solo "gli autori potevano autorizzare le copie, e questo veniva fatto in riunioni pubbliche, in cui il copista leggeva il testo ad alta voce in presenza dell'autore, il quale poi la certificava come precisa".

In the middle phase, lasting from approximately towhen he developed the first symptoms of AIDS, Haring produced paintings that were essentially Pop versions of Neo-Expressionism. In these years he also used his cartoon-like graphic line to execute murals, many of them for and even together with children.
There can be no doubt that the artist's battle with AIDS had a profound effect on his artistic vision. Sussmann's categories are nonetheless too neat and too emphatic, concealing both the humor that frequently enlivens the late works and the dark side that shadows even the earliest, cartoon-like compositions. And the artist was a social activist from the beginning of his career.
At a demonstration in Central Park inhe distributed 20, antinuclear posters. His "Anti-Litterpig" campaign was launched inthe famous Crack is Wack mural painted in The true "horror of AIDS had come to light"3 for Haring inand he had for some time regarded himself as a prime AIDS "candidate" - even before discovering the first Karposi sarcoma on his leg during a trip to Japan in Not only numerous intimate acquaintances, including his ex-lover Juan Dubose, had already succumbed to the disease.
Rumors of Haring's own infection were rife long before he himself learned that he was HIV-positive. More than a year before the diagnosis, Newsweek had tracked the artist down in Europe to ask if his protracted stay there was a cover-up for his affliction with AIDS. Yet for all the traumatic implications of the onset of the disease itself, it is a mistake to overemphasize the event as a kind of watershed, as a moment in which the oeuvre itself underwent some seismic change.
Such an oversimplification is tempting but ultimately misleading. And it is not unlike that simplistic approach to the work of Andy Warhol which suggests a fundamental shift in theme and point of view following the assassination attempt by Valerie Solanis.
In fact, Warhol's own fascination with "Death and Disaster" was well established before the deranged feminist entered the Factory in with revolver blazing.
And it was soon followed by garishly tinted studies of suicides, car crashes, race riots and electric chairs. Keith Haring, too, had explored a darker side of experience long before the dread diagnosis. The earliest works produced in his characteristic graphic style include serpents and monsters, nuclear radiation and falling angels, cannibals, omnivorous worms, bloody daggers and skeletons.
The devil himself makes occasional appearances, as does the multi-headed beast of the Apocalypse. One can make out a sinister form that may well represent a virus, and an androgynous figure which wheels a sword-like crucifix over the heads of children, while scissors and chains are employed in sadomasochistic practices which often end in castration.
In a Saint Sebastian, produced in and one of the few titled works by Haring, the martyr's body is pierced not by arrows but by airplanes - one of the numerous examples of the artist's critical view of technology, but also testimony to his deeply felt pacifism. The figure of a hanged man, perhaps influenced by William Burroughs' Naked Lunch, makes it debut in So, too, do human figures writhing in the clutch of a nest of serpents.
In a serpent pierces and thereby joins like so many beads on a string a row of human figures with holes in their abdomens. Indeed, human figures with holes gouged in their middles are a recurrent pictogram - one inspired, according to the artist himself, by the assassination of John Lennon in December of Yet even before that event, Haring was sounding the themes of violence and death in the cut-up headlines he posted around New York City, inspired both by his friend Jenny Holzer and by William Burroughs.
When Keith Haring undertook his first cross-country trip in with his girlfriend Susan, he financed the journey by silkscreening T-shirts and selling them along the way.
One model showed Richard Nixon sniffing a kilo of marijuana; the other featured the logo of the Grateful Dead: a skull - the penultimate memento mori that also fascinated Warhol - split by a lightning bolt.
One of Haring's early subway drawings includes a skeleton wearing wire-rimmed glasses as an encoded self-portrait. In a diary entry for March 18,the artist reflected on the significance of "Being born in, the first generation of the Space Age, born into a world of television technology and instant gratification, a child of the atomic age. Raised in American during the sixties and learning about war from Life magazines on Viet Nam.
Watching riots on television He was equally aware of the dangers inherent in "peacetime" uses of nuclear energy. The notorious near-meltdown at Three Mile Island in occurred a short distance from the Haring home in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. Spaceships projecting rays onto earthlings often hover over his works, and his famous "radiant" baby may suggest radioactive contamination as well as spiritual glow.
In short, the first "chapter" in Haring's career was neither so innocent nor so giddily affirmative as it is sometimes made out to be. His media-savvy generation, exposed at an early age to "sex, drugs and rock-'n'-roll," was quickly disabused of childhood's illusions. At the age of 19, he confided to his diary, "Through all the shit shines the small ray of hope that lives in the common sense of the few. The music, dance, theater, and the visual arts: the forms of expression, the arts of hope.
This is where I think I fit in. What one witnesses is literally The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, to cite the title of a Roland Petit choreography for the Ballet National de Marseilles, for which Haring created a huge front curtain in Whether Haring was familiar with William Blake's ironic poem of the same title is uncertain, Album) the English poet was a favorite of the psychedelic set to which Haring belonged for a time.
Furthermore, there are occasional parallels between Haring's graphic style and the illustrations Blake prepared for his own works. The implications of a linked pair of Blake titles - Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience - have clear relevance for Haring's oeuvre, as well. The key to Haring's work is not to be found in "chapters" or in oppositions, but precisely in the mingling, the marriage of innocence and experience, good and evil, heaven and hell.
This inherent but essential ambiguity is reinforced by an image he created in June ofless than a year before his death. He was in Paris at the time, executing a monumental painting intended to decorate a dirigible to be flown over the city in commemoration of the th anniversary of the French Revolution. The starting point was a photograph of the artist sitting on a chair from the Vitra Collection, part of a series of celebrity portraits made for the German furniture company.
With a felt pen, Haring fitted himself out with wings, floated a halo over his head, bound his feet with shackles and coiled a rope-like or snakelike form around his torso. In fact, in other works the rope which binds a victim often turns into a snake in the hands of his tormentor.
Haring remarked on his own creation: "Whoever understands this photograph understands what my work is all about. In his journal Haring described the events of June 16th as follows: Friday I had a "press lunch" with the airship people boring and trivial.
Then went to Futura's exhibit and bought a nice new painting. Met David Galloway there. He Snake It - Lords (3) - Swords (Vinyl to Paris to interview me for the book Hans Mayer is doing on my sculptures. Went with David to see the airship painting again and do photos. We talked a lot and by the same time we got to the hotel the conversation got deeper and continually off the "subject. Did some photos for a German spaghetti book.
Portrait of me with a drawing made out of spaghetti we ordered from room service. Nice quiet dinner and then returned to hotel with David to talk till 1 The "deeper" talk that quickly veered from the topic of sculpture and continued into the early hours of the morning ultimately found its focus in the fat roll of galley proofs resting on the mantelpiece of Haring's suite at the Ritz Hotel.
This was the interview by David Scheff that would appear in Rolling Stone on August 10th, and in which Haring talked with painful frankness about his own illness. Later in the year, he would march in protest against New York City's "racist" policy with respect to the disease, which allegedly only afflicted perverts, junkies and Afro-Americans.
Nonetheless, when the time came to approve Sheff's uncompromising interview, the activist experienced a moment of hesitation. Quite simply, he feared he might not be permitted to work with children again, and this was one of his most cherished activities.
Despite such misgivings, on June 17 he sent his approval of the text to the editors of Rolling Stone, and when it appeared the artist experienced an immense, deeply gratifying wave of sympathy. The sole sour note was a protest against his having been commissioned by Princess Caroline to execute a mural for the maternity ward of the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco - allegedly a potential danger for future generations.
In transforming a photographic portrait into a self-portrait with a few brisk strokes, Haring made an emphatic statement about his artistic intentions.
At the same time, he revealed the depth of his own religious sentiment. Though not a practicing Christian in the last years of his life, the artist had a profound sense of right and wrong, of good and evil, and he devoted a considerable part of his energy to social causes. Attending Sunday School and church had been a regular part of the Harings' family life, and in summer Keith attended the camp run by the United Church of Christ.
As a teenager he joined the Jesus Saves movement, read the Bible voraciously and developed "an obsession with the concept of the Second Coming Even at the age of 12, according to Haring's mother, "he began making drawings in which there were Jesus symbols and other types of symbols, like a loop with two dots. Indeed, the artist once complained to his journal that "Most religions are so hopelessly outdated, and suited to fit the particular problems of earlier times, that they have no power to provide liberation and freedom, and no power to give 'meaning' beyond an empty metaphor or moral code.
When he finally decided, while dancing at New York's Paradise Garage, to depict the Ten Commandments within the arches of Bordeaux's Musee d'Art Contemporain for his show there inHaring was at a loss to remember all the commandments: "So the minute I get to Bordeaux, I ask for a bible!
Painting an angel along with a mother and child on the coffin of his friend Yves Arman, who died in a car crash, transcended mere decoration to become a ritual act of healing. Haring's fundamental religiosity, on the other hand, was also influenced by his interest in so-called "primitive" cultures, their myths and rituals and totemic objects - interests that inform the artist's pseudo-African masks, for example. Haring's use of traditional Christian imagery is particularly explicit in Apocalypsehis first collaboration with William Burroughs.
Each composition is a reprise on a collaged image taken from advertising, art history or Catholic theology. In addition to a Christ with a bleeding heart, the series includes an advertisement from LP s significantly, the period of Haring's own infancy in which a mother tenderly - and, by implication, Madonna-like - leans over her baby to offer him a milk-bottle.
The explicitly Catholic allusions continue in Haring's next collaboration with Burroughs - the suite of etchings entitled The Valley.
Here the imagery includes the torso of a male figure inserting a knife beneath his ribs to duplicate one of Christ's stigmata. This belated "embrace" of Catholic symbology aligns Haring even more closely with other prominent creative rebels: with Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol and Haring's street-wise friend and sometime-collaborator Madonna.
For those three taboo-breaking artists the Catholic religion offered an especially fertile field for rebellion. There is a kind of poetic logic in the fact that Haring's collaborations with Burroughs mark the end of his career, since it began with the mock New York Post headlines inspired by the cut-up technique Burroughs employed in Naked Lunch.
The artist, furthermore, seems to have felt an intuitive sympathy for a surrealistic juxtaposition of images - partly inspired by his own use of hallucinogenic drugs, but also by his acquaintance with the works of Burroughs and the Beat-generation poets.
A sentence from Burroughs' Soft Machine, published inmight almost describe a composition by Haring: "Carl walked a long row of living penis urns whose penis has absorbed the body with vestigial arms and legs breathing through purple fungoid gills Inthe artist told an interviewer that the author was "very into a lot of the world I've depicted, especially in the recent things - sex, mutations, weird science fiction situations.
Timothy Leary, self-proclaimed guru of the acid age, remarked of the first Haring-Burroughs collaboration, Apocalypse, that it was "like Dante and Titian getting together.
On March 20,Haring made the following remark in his journal: "I always knew, since I was young, that I would die young. But I thought it would be fast an accident, not a disease. In fact, a man-made disease like AIDS. Time will tell that I am not scared. I live everyday as if it were the last. I love life. Yet in the same journal entry which included the vigorous assertion of his love for life, Haring composed the following reaction to the news that the policemen accused of killing Michael Stewart had all been acquitted:.
I hope in their next life they are tortured like they tortured him. They should be birds captured early in life, put in cages, purchased by a fat, smelly, ugly lady who keeps them in a small dirty cage up near the ceiling while all day she cooks bloody sausages and the blood spatters their cage and the frying fat burns their matted feathers and they can never escape the horrible fumes of her burnt meat. One day the cage will fall to the ground and a big fat ugly cat will kick them about, play with them like a toy, and slowly kill them and leave their remains to be accidentally stepped on by the big fat pink lady who can't see her own feet because of her huge sagging tits.
An eye for an eye Like a Bosch-Burroughs vision, the passage indicates the rage Haring could experience when confronted with social and political injustice. For an understanding of the artist's oeuvre as a whole, however, it is important to observe that in the journal entry for a single day, remarks of a tender, Christian-like nature - "I'm sure when I die, I won't really die, because I live in many people,"17 - are followed by fulminations of Old Testament rage.
Yet this dichotomy in no sense represents a contradiction; far more, it is symptomatic of the complexity of the artist's vision. It is an underlying duality which make the early works more than naive cartoons, the late ones more than angry odes to man's mortality. Fitted out with the wings necessary to ascend into heaven and the shackles drawing him down into the fire and brimstone of hell, Keith Haring demonstrated an astonishingly precocious grasp of the inherent ambiguities of his generation, of his age.
He was the loving, lusting, break-dancing, quintessential American boy, but also an untiring, uncompromising social critic, and he was doomed to die young of a disease that decimated his generation. I suppose it's some people are sexual but others are not and then of course there are many in between.
I'm sure many people get tired or lose interest in sex as they get older and lose self esteem or dare I say it pretend to be pure in mind. As you might have guessed already I am one of the former as it might not be quite like when I was a teenager and had to stop thinking about sex all the time as it might drive on crazy and yes I get lows but but my continuous sexual highs can last many weeks. But I think having a strong sex drive is a sign of a healthy mind and I'm sure it helps to keep me young which is another good reason for turning myself into Jojo and seeing myself as more of a player.
Of course I should keep it to myself but it's nice to share. Last year I decided that I was going to start reading more and I read books.
This year, I wanted to up my game a little bit and do more like a reading marathon and ended up the year reading books, a book for every day. Even though I am a pretty athletic person, I can't run because it hurts my knees. I am not as graceful and elegant as I would need to be for professional dance and sports has never interested me. But reading is the one thing I can do and I like to do at the gym, on planes, in bed, and in the bathtub primarily.
I didn't read to show off but to escape the reality of our current country's political situation and to learn more about the lives and perspectives of others unlike me. I can say that I really enjoyed the vast majority of the books I've read and don't have any significant regrets for this reading marathon. I should also note that, although some of these books did come out inmany did not. The following are my favorite books of this year that I read this year regardless of their original publication date.
I know I am also probably forgetting some and I feel remiss in that too, but I spent hours writing the following even longer than that reading these and I hope some of you get some good recommendations of books you might also like to read or can connect with me on a book you have read.
Feel free to Snake It - Lords (3) - Swords (Vinyl your favorites as well! I am highly interested in having conversations about books and finding out about literature I may have had less exposure to living in America.
This book is an astounding work that covers so many different states and personal backgrounds to reflect on race in America. If you like Humans of New York, this is a little like that in the sense that it explores what makes us human but it's a great more complex and thorough than that-maybe a Humans of America. The fact that Guo and Vulchi were able to travel all across the US to gain an understanding of so many people and how their race has affected their lives is a daring and meaningful venture in and of itself but it's also clear that they make a concerted effort to explore the things these people like and enjoy so that there's a fuller sense to some things they have in common with others.
In addition, the photographs of these people really add to a sense of them. We must change in our country.
We must develop more empathy and patience. We must be able to listen to others who we think we share nothing in common with and find the things we do share whilst respecting individual differences. This is the only way we will be able to heal and move forward. This is a harrowing read, especially because there is truth in the weight of our names as Americans being tied to the deep sins of mistreating other humans. This is also, however a very poetic read, haunting in its lyrical quality and in the way that Luiselli is able to adeptly convey the range of emotions she feels, desperate and distraught but also so very insightful.
You will read these pages wit your heart in your throat, worry that if you are not careful, you may actually end of swallowing it. Can Xue is not understood fully by probably most people and I myself had to read several sentences over again a few times, especially this work, the most esoteric of what I've read three novels and one short story collection this year.
The imagery is especially potent here and you don't really know exactly what is happening in the way the human form can transform. You really don't know quite what could be actually happening This would be a book I would read at the end of the world cuddled under a blanket and remembering the most imaginative humans could be then hoping there were some creatives still left out in the tundra of the world.
Another new author I discovered was Karen Tei Yamashita and, though I also enjoyed reading a collection of her plays entitled Anime Wong, I even more so enjoyed reading this novel. Yamashita is Japanese American but you get more of that specific perspective from her plays. Set between Japan and Brazil, this novel features a very vivid cast of interesting characters not to mention the protagonist that is the rotating ball in front of the Japanese train conductor's head. This is one of the most unique books I have ever read in my life and it's no surprise that the forward is from one of the most highly intelligent authors in the world, Percival Everett.
This novel is a real treat and is a riveting surreal adventure. I've spent many years not knowing very much at all about the lives of those who live in North Korea, much as the citizens of North Korea have spent their lives knowing not too much about others outside of their country.
This non fiction work follows the lives of North Koreans who escape into China and South Korea and manage to be granted refugee status and follows them up until the early s.
It's another book that disarms you in its brutality. Demick records the stories of their lives, how they bought into propaganda, and how they started to gather inklings of the truth while they were in their home country.
The depth of the poverty and brainwashing is immense from the time that these people are schoolchildren. Even if they were starving, if someone came by LP saw that their picture of Kim Jong-il then Kim Jong-un weren't immaculate, they could be taken and forced into a labor camp.
If they didn't weep loud enough at the death of Kim Jong-il, they were also suspect and no one could trust their neighbors, who could also very likely be government informants.
The only media that they had access to was North Korean and Russian propaganda films and even their literature was greatly restricted. In addition, even having a bowl of rice a day was seen as a great luxury. Many starved to death and were happy to have less mouths to feed in their family.
The clothing women could wear was also severely limited. This was and possibly still in many ways is a super suppressed society from the point of view of an American especially. I'd be curious if anything has changed and what but really what honestly struck me is how the government deliberately misled their citizens into thinking that they were producing things they weren't and that the rest of the world was under the same amount of hardship.
This is a government who would rather see their people starve than to stoop to accepting aid from abroad. It's eye opening and terrifying for me to think of the people who have suffered and died under these regimes. There has been a real paucity in literature of valuable and unique human perspectives and this work of nonfiction is an incredibly valuable addition to the canon of literature as a whole and adds to our collective human empathy and understanding of the range of experiences one can have while being alive.
Keah Brown is a woman like none other-honest about the world and her own growth as a human, friend, and twin sister, insightful about the racism and ableism in our current present world and humorous in her observations of pop culture.
Keah Brown has a different ability level and many might say she has a disability. I say she has an ability that most other people do not possess and may not ever possess. But, it does mean that we would all be wise to learn from her perspective. One of the most astounding books of fiction I read this year was a book that feels incredibly brave and is loosely based on actual incidents that happened in the Rodney King riots of LA.
Steph Cha is Korean American but it became widely clear from this novel that she is very invested in promoting healing between the Korean and African American communities. The novel goes back and forth between and and explores racism with a deep and personal delving that made me literally at times gasp out loud. This is the kind of wholly relevant novel we can all learn something from even despite it being technically fiction.
There are still lots of truths to be found here. If you live in America and are even remotely aware of the racist systems and acts of violence that are committed against those in the African and African American communities, you should be appalled.
The fact of the matter is, most of the time these acts are not even classified as terrorism and yet they are just as damaging and politically motivated. This book explores the heartache and mobilization of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the police brutality and death and the systems in place that keep white people especially profiting.
It is shameful. There should be reparations. This is a must read for all humans who want to come to a better understanding of what it takes to make a movement and the real human damage to what has occurred in several cities across America where the blood on our hands cannot ever be washed off. Miriam Toews comes from a Mennonite perspective and often her stories focus on Mennonite life with some personal anecdotes seemingly inserted here and there.
This novel feels much different and offers an important aspect of feminism in terms of exploration of the human female mind after the real life events taking place in Bolivia in when these women were raped consistently by men in their Mennonite community and were basically told by these men that these abuses were not happening and that these women were psychologically unsound. Most books of this nature explore the deep wounds of being a victim. This book offers a different sort of perspective.
While still putting a human face to the damage done by men, it focuses more on the action of these women in discussions and meetings to decide how they will solve this problem going forward. Will they kick out the men? Will they leave completely? If they leave, will they take the children including the male children?
At what age does a male stay behind? These are complex and very real questions and all choices are intellectually explored with great discussion.
It made me feel the strength and empowerment of women vs. Well worth the read! This is a daunting read. Ellmann clearly was going for a marathon level of stream of consciousness when she wrote this one. But, there is also the overarching story line of being a mother, a daughter whose mother has passed away of Cancer, remarrying after divorce, and oddly enough being a pie baker. I do think this book is worth reading, especially if you can get in the groove and feel the pulse of the first person female protagonist but you do need to obviously put in a huge time and emotional commitment.
