The October issue of frieze features a specially commissioned visual essay by Viviane Sassen, an interview with Senga Nengudi, and profiles on Luke Willis Thompson, Cécile B. Evans and Roee Rosen, among many others. Plus, columns and reviews from around the world.

Visual Essay: Viviane Sassen
"I relate to Miller’s intimation of the uncanny: a shadow is always present. That said, humour is never far off." Viviane Sassen presents a visual homage to the iconic photographer Lee Miller, on the occasion of Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain and Sassen’s Hot Mirror, running concurrently at Hepworth Wakefield.

One Take: Luke Willis Thompson
"Human feels intimate, painfully so, and it should." In the wake of debates sparked by Luke Willis Thompson’s Turner prize nomination, Tavia Nyong’o examines how the artist reveals tales of race and class that are etched on the skin.  

Also featuring:
Cal Revely-Calder explores Cécile B. Evans’s video worlds and the fallacies of "community building"—online and "IRL"; Andrew Durbin discovers mourning, melancholy and the history of class struggle in the US, through the works of John Hanson, Fred Lonidier and Rob Nilsson; fiction writer and essayist Brenda Lonzano goes through the looking glass with Liliana Porter’s microcosmic works; Tel Aviv-based artist Roee Rosen talks humour and alter egos in "My Influences"; poet CAConrad discovers the corrosive effects of empire on everyday life in the installations of Candice Lin; and Matthew Mclean reflects on why the Austrian expressionist Oskar Kokoschka made a life-size doll of his former lover, Alma Mahler.

Columns & reviews:
London-based artist Evan Ifekoya on their life in sound; Emily LaBarge on the cruise liner as represented in 20th-century literature; Michelle Orange on a spate of new films celebrating the legacy of punk; Tausif Noor on the repercussions of the Progressive Artists Group’s secularist vision in India; Jörg Heiser on minimalism in Mesut Özil’s football playing; and Michael Bracewell’s fan letter to Pet Shop Boys.

Plus, 37 exhibition reviews from 30 cities, including reports on David Wojnarowicz at New York’s Whitney Museum and Hello World at Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof. Answering our questionnaire is Martha Rosler, whose retrospective at New York’s Jewish Museum opens in November.
