frieze d/e

Issue 25

Autumn 2016

The 25th issue of frieze d/e features an extensive dossier on Kai Althoff, who also provided us with a unique cover.

The issue also features a segment on art and theatre in Berlin featuring a roundtable with theatre critics about Chris Dercon’s appoitment to the Volksbühne, and a personal piece by Jan Verwoert about tensions between the creative worker vs. the local boardroom.

Plus reviews of the 9th Berlin Biennale, Manifesta 11, Mathis Altmann, Ilya Lipkin, Grayson Revoir, and much more.
