frieze magazine

Issue 141

September 2011

For the 20th anniversary issue frieze asked 20 artists whose work has been on the cover of frieze to nominate a contemporary artist whose work inspires them. Artists, including Doug Aitken, Charles Atlas, Jeremy Deller, Tracey Emin, Louise Lawler, Richard Prince and Wolfgang Tillmans, tell us whose work they think is timely and provocative.

In their ‘State of the Art’ editorial editors Jörg Heiser and Jennifer Higgie ask how the art world has changed since the first issue of frieze.

Also included are original contributions from writers Tom McCarthy and the International Necronautical Society, Mark von Schlegell, and Bruce Sterling, all of whom explore different visions of the future. Plus, a unique artist project by Joseph Kosuth, who used the first issue of frieze to create a ‘house of ideas’.
