Issue 102
October 2006

In the October issue of frieze Peter Fischli and David Weiss talk to Jörg Heiser about three decades of making art, slapstick and semiotics, sausages and sunsets, culture and cats.

Bruce Hainley reflects on the career of Lee Lozano, who, through her paintings, drawings and conceptual projects, aimed to participate only in a total revolution both personal and public.

Jan Verwoert considers the work of Hilary Lloyd, whose video and slide installations study and celebrate movement, pose and gesture.

On the occasion of his 70th birthday, Steve Reich, one of the most influential American composers of the last 40 years, talks to Dan Fox and Mark Godfrey about his groundbreaking early works and more recent multimedia collaborations.
