  • The 24-year-old student who confronted Martin Heidegger about his fascist sympathies and went on to be one of Europe’s most important thinkers.

  • An appropriate response to the absurdity of current affairs – the politics of surrealism.

  • Art as recuperative practice: how apartheid shaped arts education in South Africa.

  • Too clever for anyone's good: the sinister implications of intelligence.

  • Daily reviews: from Hamburg, London, Los Angeles and Naples on
