Weekend Reading List
From Sergei Eisenstein's erotica to ideas for a pneumatic parliament: what to read this weekend
- ‘To open windows on the given world that allow us to see outside it’ – Margaret Atwood on the role of art in the age of Trump.
- Why has the women’s march on Washington become as divisive as it is unifying?
- From the frieze magazine archive: does the fragile state of Western democracy call for the formation of a ‘pneumatic parliament’?
- If you think of Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein as earnestly political rather than perversely playful, a new exhibition of his erotic drawings may well change your mind.
- From frieze.com: editor Dan Fox’s moving tribute to longtime frieze contributor Mark Fisher who sadly passed away last week.
- The unconscious is a political problem – an article on mental health from Fisher himself.
‘The writer with an underlying hatred of writing, as if each word was a stain on the page’ – a new publication on Thomas Bernhard.
