Issue 65
March 2002

In March, frieze takes a walk on the dark side, where sinister science meets morbid Modernity.

George Pendle explores the strange web that connected Kenneth Anger, Dr Alfred Kinsey, L Ron Hubbard, Alaister Crowley and the scientist John Whiteside Parsons in mid-20th century Los Angeles.

Joerg Heiser looks at the mysterious side of Modernist plain surfaces, from Boullee’s Temple of Death, through to the Minimal art of Tony Smith and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Plus features on Tom Burr, Paul Noble, Florian Pumhoesl and Nigel Cooke.
