PEDRO VALDEZ CARDOSO
"The Lost Language of Cranes", 1986 by David Leavitt & 'Interviews, conversations and chit-chat (1986-2004)', Mike Kelley, ed. By John C. Welchman. It was 1990, and this was the year when I discovered two important authors, both Americans, by coincidence. One high school classmate lent me a book with a bizarre title, a novel about identity and sexuality in a neo-realistic style of American postmodernism that I still consume today. It was absolutely liberating because until then the literary and poetic references were mostly francophone. It was a very important book for me and determined my onward taste in literature, and even for a certain liberation and individual freedom. | The second book I suggest is a compilation of interviews with the artist Mike Kelley, whose work I also discovered in 1990. This artist remains in my top ten today and was absolutely defining to the way I see and make art and especially as a reference for the art I appreciate.

JOANA LINDA 
“Wim Wenders: Once” by Wim Wenders. I bought this book in 2001 during my first trip to New York, shortly after 9/11. I am not particularly fascinated by the American imaginary, nor by Wim Wenders, but I fell in love with the back cover photo and the story behind it. One day, while walking in Monument Valley, Wenders found a couple trying to change a tire, it was Isabella Rossellini and Martin Scorsese. This book is a traveler's, and encounters’ diary in which, as he says: ‘Every photo is the first frame of a movie’.

 

 

  

ANA PÉREZ QUIROGA
“An Apartment on Uranus: Chronicles of the Crossing” by Paul B. Preciado. I read about subjects that are close to me, that I consider important to learn about, and will help me walk through life at a certain moment. Paul B. Preciado is a transgender writer, philosopher and curator who works on issues related to identity, gender and pornography. “They say representation. We say experimentation. They say identity. We say crowd. They say national language. We say multicode translation. They say they tame the periphery. We say, mix the center. (...) ‘An apartment in Uranus. Chronicles of the crossing’ (Anagram). P. 40.” It seems to me fundamental, at a time when the common living system fell apart and we do not live as we were used to or in the way that was imposed on us, to question other systems in which we were included without question.

  

JOÃO LEONARDO
"Sol LeWitt a Life of Ideas" by Larry Bloom & "On Being an Artist" by Michael Craig-Martin. I always enjoyed reading artist biographies or autobiographies and artists own writings so I recommend these two books. "Sol LeWitt, a Life of Ideas", by Larry Bloom, published last year, is an extensive, detailed and fascinating biography of an artist who was very influential but a bit media shy and reclusive. When researching, the author reached out to me and I give my own testament to his legacy. "On Being an Artist" by Michael Craig-Martin is a compilation of his own writings, mostly very short autobiographical texts, on a very diverse range of art subjects. It’s a wonderful, fun, accessible, unpretentious book that I vividly recommend to any artist.

 

SUSANA ANÁGUA
“The Reinvention of the Real” by David Santos. The choice of David Santos' book ‘The Reinvention of the Real’ is due to numerous factors; the most obvious being the relationship of the title to the current situation we live in, but also due to the impossible task of trying to understand what is real in Contemporaneity. A book, a doctoral thesis, a curatorship within the curation of a Museum, various texts by artists and works that led contemporary art to the decentralization of the Museum of Neo-realism and got history in review, thinking about the past, the present, and the future.”

 

 

 

SARA BICHÃO
A poem by Matthew Zapruder, “April Snow". “Today in El Paso all the planes are asleep on the runway. The world is in a delay. All the political consultants drinking whiskey keep their heads down, lifting them only to look at the beautiful scarred waitress who wears typewriter keys as a necklace. They jingle when she brings them drinks. Outside the giant plate glass windows the planes are completely covered in snow, it piles up on the wings. I feel like a mountain of cell phone chargers. Each of the various faiths of our various fathers keeps us only partly protected. I don’t want to talk on the phone to an angel. At night before I go to sleep I am already dreaming. Of coffee, of ancient generals, of the faces of statues each of which has the eternal expression of one of my feelings. I examine my feelings without feeling anything. I ride my blue bike on the edge of the desert. I am president of this glass of water.”

 

PEDRO VAZ
“Growth of the Soil” by Knut Hamsun. “The ‘Growth of the Soil’ is a book by Knut Hamsun (1859-1952). I loved reading it for several reasons, but above all for how magical it is, and its simplicity. As the story unfolds, we are led to imagine and think about what would be the return of man to a simpler life in communion with nature. I believe it is perfect and very current for the times we are all going through.” Pedro Vaz

 

JOANA APARÍCIO 
“The Island of the Day Before” (1994) by Umberto Eco. I chose this Umberto Eco book that I picked from my family library - like this one, usually books of romance and fiction, are difficult for me to grab and read. The Italian author describes a "safe shipwreck" along the coast of an inaccessible island, where the reality of a man is built upon his memories and enigmas of the 17th century, of how to create a world without paradoxes, and the mastery to understand how to be yourself. It’s a very pertinent work for these times. I stayed with her for the surprise of being so relevant.

CRISTINA REGADAS 
"Austerlitz" by W.G. Sebald (2001). My friend and artist Lauren Moya Ford gave me this book. Lauren underlined sentences in the book that she associated with the work we were simultaneously doing at the time. "Austerlitz" is a beautiful work about Time and Memory, a hybrid between reality and fiction; a journey from the personal history of the character Jacques Austerlitz to the history of Europe in the 19th century.

THIERRY FERREIRA 
“Arte na Cidade” by Mário Caeiro, “Poesia” by Daniel Faria, and “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. My readings, in this period of confinement, have been guided by my sweet Carolina of almost three years. What has fascinated me about this experience is not so much the readings themselves, but the time shared and the observation of my daughter as a living book. When I am allowed some time off, I stroll between art, poetry and spirituality cross-reading between “Arte na Cidade” by Mário Caeiro, “Poetry” by Daniel Faria and “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.
