frieze issue 89 out now

In the March issue of frieze Jennifer Higgie explores the grim humour and surreal clarity of Michael Borremans’ paintings and drawings.

Michael Bracewell talks to John Stezaker about fascination, education, politics and dreams of bridges.

Tom Morton looks at the ways in which Carol Bove mines the recent past: the sexual revolution, key books and the most immediate of historical deposits – style.

Jorg Heiser discusses Thomas Schutte’s almost 30-year concern with puncturing manifestations of power and subjection.

Jan Verwoert visits Paulina Olowska’s alternative history of the avant-garde and finds it populated by both real and fictional heroines.

“What do you like the look of?
Christian Marclay responds to the frieze back page Questionnaire.

Also featured: Paul Chan by Peter Eleey; Simon Dybbroe Moller by Dominic Eichler; Bernadette Corporation by Emily Pethick and Michael Stevenson by Brian Dillon.

The front section includes the ‘State of the Art’ editorial by Tom Morton, alongside regular frieze columnists: In part two of his discussion of the new MoMA, Robert Storr’s ‘View from the Bridge’ asks how the museum will mine the riches of its unparalleled collections? George Pendle’s ‘Informant’ column looks at the narrowing gap between religion and science and in ‘Laughter Tears and Rage’ Brian Dillon looks at the surreal empiricism of British anthropological survey Mass Observation’s. Plus, Dominic Eichler browses through some of today’s independent art magazines. For this month’s debate Kirsty Bell and Felix Ensslin discuss the ethics of ‘Regarding Terror’, a current show on the Red Army Faction at Kunst-Werke, Berlin.

The back section features reviews from cities including Paris, New York, London, Oslo, Los Angeles, Berlin, Glasgow, Stockholm, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Gwangju and Eastbourne: ‘Sons et Lumieres’, James Lee Byars, Monica Sosnowska, ‘UKS Biennial’, Matthew Greene, Lari Pittman, ‘Black Atlantic’, Jennifer Bolande, Karla Black, Felix Gmelin, Spencer Finch, ‘Formalism: Modern Art, Today’, Josef Kramholler, Teresa Hubbard/Alexander Birchler, ‘Gwangju Biennale’, Jockum Nordstrom, Kurt Lightner, Martin Creed, ‘The House in the Middle’, Julianne Swartz, and Jimmy Robert and Ian White.
