frieze d/e

Issue 8

Feb - Mar 2013

Issue 8 of frieze d/e turns its focus to the Rhineland with a roundtable featuring Renate Goldmann, Hannes Loichinger, Marcel Odenbach, Susanne Titz and Gregory H. Williams who discuss the myths and realities of the Cologne art scene in the early 1990s and the effects of its enduring legacy in places as far afield as Berlin and New York.

Thomas Schütte speaks with Ulrich Loock about four decades of art making and the place of public monuments in his disparate practice.

Timotheus Vermeulen reports from Dusseldorf on the growing interest in a generation of artists graduating from the academy and a city emerging from the shadow of its glory days of the 1970s and ’80s.

Tom Morton examines the feints, swerves and coded allusions in the work of Michael Krebber, with the first major retrospective of his work at CAPC Bordeaux.
