The cross-disciplinary magazine Janus is now available and can be found in the best art bookstores across Europe.

The new issue of Janus is out now with a special cover and back cover by the artist Fabrice Hyber. It is an ironic subversion of the double-faced Janus transformed into two rats moving in opposite directions. Hyber plays with the theme of the issue 'Incredible Inventions' in art and science by drawing the tails of these rats (typical laboratory animals) as they intertwine across the spine of the magazine and become a RADAR, RAT and TAR, the mirrored double.

The background of the cover and back cover is Hyber's unique green which plays well with the special section of the issue dedicated to 'Fostering the Garden', an account of Janus' last symposium at the LeWitt Foundation in Praiano together with creative essays on the subject of art, landscape architecture and gardens.

The artist-curator section features Roberto Cuoghi presented by Marcella Beccaria, Vincent Geyskens by Koen Leemans, Michael Fliri by Luk Lambrecht, Diango Hernandez by Lisette Lagnado and Mark Wallinger and Bill Viola by Luigi Garbini.
