Frieze online

Frieze Video: continuing our series on non-profit spaces, we visit Berlin‘s Kunst-Werke, PRAXES and New Theater to find out about how and why each began and look ahead to their plans for the future, while editor Sam Thorne introduces the feature on Post-Internet art that appears in the print issue with a slideshow featuring the sculptural, graphic and filmic works of some of the most interesting artists currently working at the intersection between art and technology.

On the Frieze blog: Annie Godfrey Larmon interviews artist Germaine Kruip, Katya García-Antón visits the Lofoten International Art Festival while Colin Perry reports from the Wysing Music Festival

In the November–December issue of frieze:

Then & Now: “How does the period look today? Scanning the list of names being given the retrospective wax and polish, the answer should be: ‘It depends on whose 1990s you’re talking about.” Editor Dan Fox reconsiders British art and the 1990s. 

Poet in Action: cultdirector Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose autobiographical fantasy The Dance of Reality premiered at Cannes earlier this year discusses psychomagic, masturbation and the chaotic language of dreams with Eric Morse.

Rules of Attraction: Jennifer Kabat explores the uncomfortable world of Marlene McCarty, ‘a topsy-turvy realm where love challenges all the boundaries between us, including how we define ourselves,’ and where little girls are anything but sugar and spice and all things nice.

Beginnings & Ends: we ask eight artists, writers and curators about, emergent technologies, the arc of the future, and what exactly is meant by ‘Post-Internet art.’

Another Chapter: Moshekwa Langa is a colourist, someone who dreamt his way out of a black and white society, past its stunted horizons, to a plentitude.’ Sean O’Toole considers biography and timeliness in the work of the South African artist. 

Ways of Knowing: Timotheus Vermeulen is disoriented by the installations, sculptures and drawings of Diango Hernández.

More highlights:

Norwegian artist Ida Ekblad discusses the music that she loves in the first of a new series, Life in Music.
