  • 'To deceive a person into truth' - Søren Kierkegaard as novelist.
  • Dawn Foster on the idea of global citizenship.
  • As a major retrospective opens up in galleries across New York, we remember the work of the late Ellen Cantor in an article from the current issue of frieze.
  • Why did they vote no? On the surprising outcome of Colombia's referendum.
  • Derrida's followers would say that looking for origins is a mistake, but if you were to look to find where deconstruction started, go to the US not France.
