The April issue of frieze invites a number of artists, activists and thinkers to reflect on the theme of protest: contributors include Tania Bruguera, Okwui Enwezor, Slavs and Tatars and many others.

Also in this issue: deputy editor Amy Sherlock interviews painter Jacqueline de Jong, Travis Diehl looks at the work of queer Chicano performance artist Rafa Esparza, and Hans-Jürgen Hafner interviews Dusseldorf based artist Chris Reinecke whose work deals with issues of housing and political agitation relevant to the protest survey. Answering the questionnaire for this issue is artist and Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama.
