Weekend Reading List

From unmasking an author to literary dress sense: what to read this weekend

  • Daily reviews: read about the latest shows in Beijing, Karlsruhe and Vienna.

  • Painted ladies: depictions of sex work in Edo Period Japan.

  • More than one way to tell a story: race and narrative.

  • Everything has changed, and nothing has changed: on frieze.com, what would the late Mark Fisher have made of recent political events in the UK?

  • ‘Frock consciousness’: when authors start dressing to resemble their characters or public persona.

  • We don’t know what it means, but we do know who meant it: have scholars discovered the author of the mysterious Voynich Manuscript?

  • Respect for the dead: is it right to ignore an author’s request to destroy unfinished works after their death?

Paul Clinton is a writer and is lecturer in curating at Goldsmiths, London. His book Other Hunting will be published by Ma Bibliotheque in January 2019.
