  • Building momentum – the architecture of Budapest and Vienna reflects Europe’s current crisis of identity.

  • All week we’ve been writing on the spot reviews from the Venice Biennale: read about the Arsenale, Central Pavilion and our two-part coverage of the Giardini (post 1, 2). Watch out for further coverage over the weekend.

  • Struggle on screen: new Senegalese cinema.

  • Corporeal communism: writer Samuel R Delany on body politics.

  • ‘What I was interested in, quite simply, was changing the world’ – an interview with artist and situationist Jacqueline de Jong, in the current issue of frieze.

  • A world in need of salvation: a new book resituates Joan of Arc in a future dystopia.

  • Have public declarations of feeling shamed by others become an all too common tool of political manipulation? Or is shame coming in for an unfair shaming?
