Basel Roundup

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Basel

Bruce Nauman, Model for Trench and Four Buried Passages, 1977.
by

Chris Sharp

This Art Basel Roundup comes fresh on the heels of a visit to the opening of the 10th Berlin Biennale. This is significant because, whatever you might say about the current edition, it was conspicuously and refreshingly non-white and non-Western-European centric. As a white-dude viewer, I felt, perhaps for the... continue reading
View of Abigail Reynolds, Lost Libraries at Shoreditch Library, London, 2018.
by

Tom Jeffreys

“Many artists consider books and libraries to be oppressive hierarchies of knowledge, dogmatic and hectoring,” writes artist Abigail Reynolds in her new book Lost Libraries. But Reynolds does not agree: “I consider them the gates of freedom.”(1) Three simultaneous exhibitions in east London exemplify this fascination with books and their... continue reading

by

by

Ania Szremski

The form of writing that is truest... continue reading
Helsinki Roundup

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Helsinki

Karel Koplimets, Case No 13. Waiting for the Ship of Empties, 2017.
by

Patrick Langley

En route to Helsinki this February, as the plane dropped through patchy cloud on its descent to the Finnish capital, I peered through the window at the country’s south coast. Instead of a clean line demarcating land from sea, there was a fragmentary confusion of dark islands set amid wastes... continue reading
