Alex Da Corte’s cover is followed by a conversation between the artist and Margot Norton, who states that Da Corte’s work is able to combine “disparate references, which are oftentimes incongruous (…), and remix and subtly manipulate them in a way that seems effortless, yet somehow unearths the eerie and absurd qualities that underlie the seemingly familiar.” Charlie Fox instead, invites the reader to re-think Da Corte’s work Daggering, thanks to an unusual multiple-choice ‘Psych Test.’

In the first chapter of his new column “Curator’s Diaries”, Massimiliano Gioni recalls the experience of Jeremy Deller’s Social Parade, initiated as part of Manifesta 5, curated by Gioni himself in the Spanish Basque city of San Sebastian. A personal and intimate narration able to drive us into the folds and the real spirit of Deller’s work, presenting the organic development and the participatory ritual of a joyous parade.

A special commission signed by Simon Castets shapes an exhibition on paper featuring an extraordinary contemporary gallery of 16th and 17th-century self-portraits by women artists. And to continue on self-representations, Vincent Honoré focuses on Martha Wilson’s conceptually based performances, videos, and photo/text compositions, which grapple with constructions and manifestations of feminism and identity.

A visual essay by DIS delves into the contradictions of the economic revolution, while Petra Cortright’s visual text on Paul Chan’s work enters into dialogue with the technological revolution and its impact on society.

The rich series of conversations continues with a brilliant interview with the young American painter Jamian Juliano-Villani by Hans Ulrich Obrist; Daniel Steegmann Mangrané in dialogue with Rivet (Sarah Demeuse and Manuela Moscoso); Jean-Marie Appriou speaking with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel; Sophia Al-Maria in discussion with Lena Saraj; and Ramaya Tegegne answering Piper Marshall’s 25 questions.

The final HOT! section features an incredible selection of the artists you need to mark on your list: Frank Benson presented by Olivian Cha; Augustas Serapinas by Louisa Elderton; Ola Vasiljeva by Anna Gritz; Kayode Ojo by Francesca Gavin; Nona Inescu by João Laia; KAYA by Francesco Stocchi.

OTHER EXTRA
Portrait
from November 16th to 22nd
FW 20-21
by Eddie Peake, Proscenium, Agatha and DJ Nailpolish
In a parallelism between the artistic dimension and the real world, Petrit Halilaj’s piece Shkrepëtima (2018) becomes the stage of a performance built around the figure of a dreamer, involving a dreamlike, ritual and propitiatory set up to address the rebirth and resurrection of the House of Culture of the city of Runik in Kosovo, therefore restored to its original function. It is a dream within a dream. Petrit Halilaj’s work, withdrawn from the exhibition, tells of a dream which has yet to come true.
Enjoy your summer break, feel free, be prudent, and listen to good music.
