The October issue of frieze looks at the slapstick method in visual art. Brian Dillon traces the history of slapstick comedy, from Laurel and Hardy to Itchy and Scratchy, and from Bruce Nauman to
Phil Collins.

Jörg Heiser looks back over the career of Sigmar Polke, whose iconoclastic and innovative work is frequently comical, while Christy Lange explores the darkly humourous work of Nedko Solakov. Jennifer Allen examines the installations and sculptures of Rachel Harrison, and Jan Verwoert enjoys Cezary Bodzianowski’s acts of everyday absurdity.

In the Front section Robert Storr asks whether technocracy is replacing vision in top museum jobs, George Pendle observes pro wrestling grappling with reality, and Nancy Spector passes the time in an exhibition about duration.

Michael Bracewell discusses the changing face of London’s East End, and Emily King considers the implications of record prices fetched by design at auction. In Life in Film, Rosemarie Trockel reflects on the movies that have influenced her.

The Back section includes reviews from Austria, China, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the USA, including Eden’s Edge, ‘Imagine Action’, Andreas Slominski, Eric van Lieshout, ‘New Economy, Amar Kanwar, Eva Rothschild and David Maljikovic.

After six years we are sad to announce that Design editor Emily King is leaving frieze to concentrate on curatorial and writing projects. We are, however, very pleased to welcome New York-based critic Eugenia Bell as our new Design Editor.
To celebrate the launch of, for a limited time visitors to the website can access the complete frieze archive — a unique research tool combining sixteen years of monographs, features, reviews and images all searchable by writer, city, gallery or artist.
