Exclusively in the October issue of frieze, we present SUR L’ART (On Art), a previously unpublished artist project by Marcel Broodthaers. Originally intended for a 1975 issue of Studio International, it is available here for the first time as Broodthaers intended. The project is introduced by curator and art historian Cathleen Chaffee.
Artists in the UK are increasingly turning to narrative cinema and mainstream TV. Ed Atkins, Melanie Gilligan, Anja Kirschner and Ben Rivers take part in a panel discussion led by Dan Kidner, discussing how this tendency relates to issues of funding, ideology, duration and display. The work of Ryan Trecartin is explored in an essay by Chris Wiley and an interview with the artist by novelists Katie Kitamura and Hari Kunzru.
The October issue also features: Max Andrews on radicalism, inadequacy and the excluded in the work of Dora García, whose collaborations and performances can be seen in the Spanish Pavillion of the Venice Biennale until the end of November; and Yto Barrada in conversation with frieze co-editor Jennifer Higgie about her reasons for opening a cinematheque in Tangier.
