Jeremy Deller organizes protests and parades, curates fan art and historical artifacts, and revives revolutionary figures to wreak vengeance on today’s oligarchs. Here Brian Dillon maps the connections among the artist’s interests in pop music, folk practice, and leftist politics, Dawn Ades examines his interdisciplinary inversions, and Tim Griffin argues that he offers a different model of art-making.

For his Parkett edition, Jeremy Deller has created Odds and Sods, a portfolio of five striking images that prove the breadth of his ambitious projects.

“In the sound and spectacle of heavy metal, Deller discerns a repetition of the atmosphere of the factory: a repetition of its repetition, among other things.” 
–Brian Dillon

Wael Shawky‘s historical mash-ups employ children and marionettes, religious verses and curatorial texts. In this issue, Kaelen Wilson-Goldie focuses on the performance Dictums 10:120, Boris Groys contemplates the “Cabaret Crusades” trilogy, and Clare Davies returns to the artist’s early installations.

For his Parkett edition, Wael Shawky animates a whimsical cast of characters in a silkscreen portfolio of 12 new drawings.

Dictums raises a number of questions that actually may be the questions for contemporary art to deal with now and in relation to history, past, present, and future.” –Kaelen Wilson-Goldie 

Dayanita Singh photographs overflowing archives and empty rooms, festive celebrations and solitary moments, placing the resulting images in books, boxes, and large wooden frames. Shanay Jhaveri traces the artist’s core concerns back to her very first publication, while James Lingwood chases the echoes that reverberate through her seemingly infinite library, and Chris Dercon explores the boundless possibilities of her portable “museums.”

For her Parkett edition, Dayanita Singh captures her longtime muse Mona Ahmed lying beneath a wall of the artist’s own images—a photograph of photographs. 

“Singh’s restless way of working is a reaction to the way stories and histories are normally arranged and fixed.”
–James Lingwood

Rosemarie Trockel‘s expansive cosmos has captivated viewers for more than three decades. For the artist’s second appearance in Parkett, Christian Rattemeyer reads her book drafts, Brigid Doherty collates her collages, and Gregory Williams draws connections between abstract ceramics and portraits of primates.

For her Parkett edition, Rosemarie Trockel interweaves Parkett‘s past with her own history in the 11-color silkscreen Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

“The slightly downturned gaze of the monkey, combined with what appears to be an inviting smile, hints at interspecies communication.” 
–Gregory Williams

Also in this issue: Robotics expert Rolf Pfeifer talks to editors Mark Welzel and Jacqueline Burckhardt, editor-in-chief Bice Curiger, and Suzanne Zahnd about Jordan Wolfson‘s Female Figure and the increasing acuity of artificial intelligence; Ralph Rugoff looks closely at the invisible paintings of Bruno Jakob; and David Levine surveys museum exhibitions of performance and how they reflect a changing field. The INSERT showcases recent performances and related works by Ulla von Brandenburg, Boris Charmatz, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Anna Gaskell, Liz Magic Laser, Marcello Maloberti, Sarah Michelson, Adam Pendleton, Amalia Pica, Alexandra Pirici, Lili Reynaud Dewar, and Ugo Rondinone.
