Weekend Reading List

From Elena Ferrante to global citizenship: what to read this weekend

  • 'What is it that we want from our authors?' - the troubling unmasking of Elena Ferrante.
  • From the frieze archives: Ferrante answers our questionnaire.
  • '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.
