frieze d/e

Issue 4

Spring 2012

The Spring issue of frieze d/e marks Gerhard Richter’s exhibition ‘Panorama’ at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie, by speaking to Hal Foster.

The Milan-based novelist Vincenzo Latronico considers the rise of English among non-native speakers in the art world.

Jan Verwoert listens to Karl Holmqvist‘s own brand of drag performance: the artist’s mixture of poetry and pop.

Also featured in Issue 4: Bert Rebhandl charts the career of the director Romuald Karmakar and asks how his use of YouTube is changing the way filmmakers work and audiences watch film; and Editor Jennifer Allen reconsiders Ulrike Ottinger‘s films in light of a recent exhibition of her paintings from the 1960s.
