This month in Artforum:

September Preview: We look ahead to 40 shows worldwide—Pacific Standard Time: LA/LAArt and China After 1989, François Morellet, Mona Hatoum, Camille Henrot, Jorge Pinheiro, Takashi Murakami, and more.

Museums, Monuments, and Race: Huey Copeland talks with Frank Wilderson about the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Museum of the American Indian:

“What do you do with a group of people against whom the whole world is at war? Mainstream institutions of representation, no matter how liberal, aren’t willing to wallow in this contradiction.”
—Frank Wilderson 

The Grand Tour: Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Daniel Birnbaum, Claire Bishop, Diedrich Diederichsen, and more on the 57th Venice Biennale, Documenta 14, and Skulptur Projekte Münster:

“Maria Eichhorn’s work engages us not only in a continuing reflection on the histories of the victims of German Nazi persecution, but on the actual motivations for fascism’s renewed resources and motivations in the present.”
—Benjamin H. D. Buchloh

“This is the Documenta I always wanted: difficult, demanding, experimental, and unafraid to take risks.”
—Nuit Banai

“Gone are the days when art was free to be reckless, unfriendly, antisocial, aloof, aggressive, critical, intellectual, overblown—in a word, interesting.”
—Diedrich Diederichsen

On The Cover: Daniela Stöppel on Kerstin Brätsch: Innovation:

“Brätsch’s contemporary rituals allow one to get closer to a world of unreality and chance, beauty and conviviality.” 
—Daniela Stöppel 

Historical Projections: Erika Balsom on the art of Rosa Barba:

“Barba’s films ask what will be kept and what will be lost as the catastrophe of modernity pushes ever onward.” 
—Erika Balsom

Openings: Johanna Fateman on Diamond Stingily:

“Stingily leaves much unsaid, and the breathing room around her understated sculptures, made from beauty supplies or hardware, draws out their symbolic and melancholic power.” 
—Johanna Fateman 

And: Michael Lobel on James Rosenquist; Tim Griffin and Steven Holl on Vito Acconci; John Elderfield on Howard Hodgkin; Michele Faguet on Laura Horelli and German postcolonialism

Plus: James Quandt on Abbas Kiarostami’s 24 Frames; Amy Taubin on Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake: China Girl; Ben Kafka on Damion Searls’s The Inkblots; Adam Jasper on Harun Farocki’s final project; and cartoonist Pendleton Ward shares his Top Ten.
