Issue 18
Mar - Apr 2015

Featuring Gregor Schneider, Beatriz Colomina, and a reconsideration of Postmodern architecture, issue 18 of frieze d/e explores the intersection of art and the built environment.

Also featuring: Oliver Elser traces the unpopularity of Postmodern architecture in Germany, asking why it now seems to be experiencing a revival; Elvia Wilk surveys the playful interventions of Viennese architecture group Haus-Rucker-Co (1963–93), and their prescient warnings of climate disaster; and Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith tracks the restless sculptures of Nairy Baghramian.
