Issue 183
Nov - Dec 2016

With features on Rasheed Araeen, Matthew Brannon, and Anne Imhof; a survey of art, class and precarity; and a look at how a group of emerging female artists is exploring femininity as a marketing construct.

Also: associate editor Paul Clinton interviews queer theorist Didier Eribon; and co-editor Dan Fox explores the social and emotional complications of class in the art world; Rosanna Mclaughlin explores Beatrice Loft Schulz, Samara Scott, Amalia Ulman and Holly White’s depictions of "girliness" as consumer paradigm and sexual fantasy; and Sean O’Toole discovers poetry and social practice in the performances of Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula.
