Frieze 190 – The October issue of frieze will feature a special section on Art, Culture and Appropriation, which poses the question: ‘Who Owns What and Who Can Speak for Whom?’ Respondents include: artist and curator Coco Fusco; musician and journalist Vivien Goldman; and award-winning novelist Hari Kunzru. Plus: cultural theorist Diedrich Diederichsen talks to artist Renée Green about her 1992 work Import/Export Funk Office, which investigates the global dissemination of African-American culture, while documentary filmmaker Alix Lambert discusses art and race with poet, essayist, playwright and MacArthur Fellow Claudia Rankine in the presence of ‘Alexa’ – Amazon’s Intelligent Personal Assistant device.
Also in Frieze 190: novelist Amit Chaudhuri responds to Naeem Mohaiemen’s film Tripoli Cancelled (2017), which was screened in Athens as part of this year’s documenta 14; philosopher and author Alexander Kluge interviews artist Kerstin Brätsch on the occasion of her solo show at Museum Brandhorst, Munich; and, as part of our ongoing series ‘My Influences’, painter and award-winning writer Rosalyn Drexler talks to frieze about the artworks that have impacted her practice. Answering our October issue questionnaire are Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, whose large-scale retrospective is set to open at Tate Modern, London, in October.
