The winter issue of frieze d/e is out now, with a focus on painting today. Featured artists include Kerstin Brätsch, Daniel Richter, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz; with an exclusive project by Christian Waldvogel and an essay by Amy Sillman.

Mint Condition: Kerstin Brätsch
“The artist who remains at least semi-free must make her entire practice a kaleidoscopic contradiction.” Martin Herbert explores the fluid collaborations and market subversions of Kerstin Brätsch and her mutating project KAYA.

Different Strokes: David Joselit and Susanne von Falkenhausen
On the occasion of Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age at the Museum Brandhorst (München), the exhibition’s co-curator, David Joselit, speaks with art historian Susanne von Falkenhausen about spectacle and social networks in painting post-1960.

Also featuring
From maverick lives in German history to the pure soul music of Nina Simone, the painter Daniel Richter reveals his influences to Jörg Heiser; the artist duo Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz talk about “temporal drag” in conversation with writer Laura Guy; painter Amy Sillman explores the aesthetics of awkwardness in a new essay, “Shit Happens”; and writer Sadie Plant offers an extended take on Loretta Fahrenholz’s exhibition at the Kunsthalle Zürich.
