The June/July/August issue of frieze is out now, with features on artists Andrea Büttner, Ragnar Kjartannson and James Richards, as well as an interview with pioneering dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin, and a city report from Seoul.

Again & Again: Ragnar Kjartansson
On the occasion of the artist’s first UK survey show, at the Barbican Art Gallery in London, contributing editor Tom Morton explores the work of Ragnar Kjartansson and the notion of the eternal return. “Can a fiction, even one that is as soufflé-light as the one by the fountain in Kjartansson’s Bonjour, gather existential weight through its retelling?”

All Things Connect: Anna Halprin
Writer, artist and musician Ross Simonini speaks to the legendary American choreographer and teacher about finding healing through drawing and dance, and spirituality through movement. “That’s what’s so exciting to me about dance: our bodies are an instrument and, because of that, we become multi-dimensional artists.”

Also featuring:
Athens-based writer James Bridle investigates how the crisis in Greece is prompting young artists to find new spaces for communal reflection; and Eli Diner looks at painting and the subject of taste in the work of Orion Martin.

Columns & reviews:
Lynne Tillman writes about the current “American Horror Show” of Donald Trump, trigger alerts and trauma; Magali Arriola on how the work of a younger generation of artists articulates Mexico’s social problems; Niklas Maak reports on the German pavilion at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, which showcases projects for rehousing refugees; and John Keene reviews Ta-Nehisi Coates’s re-imagining of Marvel’s Black Panther comics.

Plus, 37 exhibition reviews from around the world; and a questionnaire from the artist and curator of Manifesta 11 Christian Jankowski, ahead of his solo show, The Legend of the Artist and other Construction Sites at Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin.
