Highlights from the May issue of ArtReview magazine:

John Bock, an artist whose performances once teetered on the edge of absurdity patent bollocks, in our writers estimation is turning to film. Is the wild man of art smartening up? Cover and portrait by director and photographer Mike Figgis.

Goshka Macuga, raised in Poland but resident in Britain, brings an outsiders levelling eye to the practice of appropriating the art of others into her own alternate histories of cultural identity. Following a successful expedition into the Manchester Museums archives, she sets her sights on Tate Britains treasures.

Cathy De Monchauxs work has always had a strong sexual undercurrent. For her first show in several years the artist returns with a new ingredient: war. ArtReview spends a day in her studio.

Vietnam vet Kim Jones may have signed up for the war as a radical and perverse gesture, writes novelist Geoff Nicholson, but if so, his friends didnt get it. Horror and outrage also met Joness infamous 1976 Rat Piece performance the public burning of three caged rats. And then there are the unsettling Mudman walks a faceless silent figure covered in mud and bearing a primitive wooden lattice structure on its back. Now, though, with a major retrospective at the Luckman in LA and work in the Venice Biennale, Jones may just be a warrior artist whose time has come.
